Explorer Axle Swap...need questions answered
I want to do an Explorer axle swap for disc brakes, limited-slip, spring-under capability, and wider stance.
How do the brakes get hooked up? Just run some new braided lines to the calipers?
How does the e-brake connect? Just like a Ranger using the oem cable?
Is it required to change the pinion angle?...especially if it will be lifted slightly.
I want the spring perches under the axle so when I get some long travel springs it will not lift the truck, rather keep the stock height or somewhere around it.
Also, do I have to weld on shock tabs? I am trying to build a prerunner eventually so I can possibly put some shock tabs on top of the leaf spring perch and make some type of small bed cage to attach the top of the springs to.
