Looks like a good start!

I plan on ditching my current leafs and going with the 4044 sometime down the road. Good choice. Where are you putting the shackle? Under cab or up front? Steering is going to be the annoying part.

....when i saw your name, i knew you were gunna ask that.
only reason i havent responded to you on that yet is idk when for sure im gunna start this cuz my moms TBSS is in the shop for deployed airbags now...so we dont know when were gettin that back AND idk when im gunna have all my parts in.

anyways, heres the price breakdown

-1600 for both axles
-300 for all leafs
-500 for wheels and tires

BUT, i sold my old 32's for 450, so esencially i only paid 50 bucks for wheels and tires haha

so ya...its not cheap, which is why im understanding now of how and why SAS's take time.

that is a good price for those axles....i look back now and wish i did a SAS with the EB d30 i have laying in my back yard in the first place....i have about 1000 into my stock front end and it sucks cause i could have done that SAS for that much...$400 for ball joints, $150 for rack and pinion, $200 for manual hubs, $230 for wheel bearings (plus another $90 in shipping for the wheel bearing when i send them in on warranty....and that is just in the first year....) so that is like almost $1100......fukc now im pissed....lol shouldnt have thought about it....lol
