As long as the gears are within a reasonable amount of difference (normally I think it's like 1%), there is no problem. The problems arise when you match (or mismatch depending on how you look at it) gear ratios like a 4.10 front and a 5.38 rear.

Bones, that's one sweet ride. What kind of groundclearance do you have with that? Looks like 3feet or so!

Gotta do some clean up to the rockers panels and add some roll on bedline to "cover up" a few things. :D then the "tested" sliders will go on. Thanks

Looks good, but what's the perch width? I predict major tire rubbage on the springs... :(

31" perches. Shouldn't be a problem since it's the same setup the Taco SASers are using.

How many Taco SAS'ers have you talked to? IIRC, the one I talked to (NorcaVP) said his 33's rubbed...???

61" w/ 31" perches vs. 63.5" w/ 27.5" perches:

Hmmmm seeing ho I DID help FlatTaco with his and once the steering stops are set, no rubbage :D I agree that your setup would be better, but this is what I had available to me.

The wide angle lens photo on the bottom makes the difference look more than it really is, but you get an idea... 3.25" difference on each side, 2.5" if I had stuck to Toy width perches (29").

But hmmm.... thinking about it more, Stock Toy axle would be 55.5/29 which is even 1.75" less each side than you... or REALLY close to what a Toy axle w/ AP spacers would be... so maybe you'll be fine after all... Just looked bad to me at first... :emb4: :emb:

Ah, so it DOES end up rubbing and reducing steering a bit! ;)

Maybe w/ the limited steering angle of a closed-knuckle Toy axle this isn't an issue, so its only noticable w/ a 44 or similar...

So I guess what I'm trying to point out to others who follow you is, stick with the stock Toy width perches or you else you'll lose one of the benefits of the 44! :D

(I believe DSI modified his 61" Waggy axle to keep the 29" perch width... so it can be done with some work)

I hear ya Erik, Like I said a full size Chevy would have been a better donor and had it cut down like you did. BTW, since you are at 27" how do you plan to do the thru-the-frame shackle hanger?

DSI just cut down the long side 3" to retain the 29" perches if I remember correctly. Maybe he cam chime in. I was going to do that, but didn't want to mess with getting the long side axle cut down aswell. The pass. side stays the same as mine is, so he has the same "limitations" as me then right? BUT it does look like he has more room than me as well? :confused:
