My CJ5 has scout axles under it. I have no comoplaints as far as performance. The spring hangers are outboarded and huebie is right the castor is tricky. Whoever did mine did not get it right but for a trail rig it works.I will say, the tough part of using Scout 44 front in an SOA application is getting the castor right. I wanted between 5.5-7 degrees of castor. Scout 44's are set up with close to 0 degrees from the factory. Grinding and turing the inner C's in not impossible, just time consuming. I also used chevy outer knuckles and spindles and then ford hubs and rotors so I could maintain the 5x5.5 bolt pattern.
