07 solid axle swap

for those who dont look in the build threads figured id start this
doin a SAS on Natlie's 07
started with the rear axle first
1998 ford e-350 full float axle with 4.10's

went thru the entire thing , swapped out the massive dual piston calipers for single large piston calipers and made new brackets for them

installed an eaton e-locker with all new beaings and setup the gears

had a custom slip yoke eliminator(sye) made up , then made a custom tone ring that i pressed on the sye .

tone ring in the pic is not the one being used

02 sas'd 1st gen
07 sas'd 2nd gen
02 chevy reg cab with 8.1

here are the adjustable brackets that i made up to mount the abs sensors to

once i got the rear axle and sye squared away i pulled the front suspension and cut off the stock brackets

steering was still in the pic cause i had to make up a cross member up front before it and its cross member came out

what ive got done for the front axle
shaved the bottom of the housing and modified the ruff stuff cover and made a upper link bridge
waiting on a knuckle to come back from the machine shop then i can install everything on the front
