Sas!! Kits

I want to get a SAS kit for a early ranger ( like 83-88) but i cant find one. I know there out there, and most of them use the dana 44 off of the early bronco witch i'm fine with but i just cant find the kit.

Let me give you a full run down on what my ideas are. I'm putting a 3.9ltr diesel cummins in a ranger with a 6speed tremect56 ( all the MPG i can get) I just want the SAS for some light offroading. Nothing to serious but i want it to keep up with my buddys bronco he brags about so much. i can get the kit for the 3.9 ( thats another forum) but i really want the SAS I'm almost certain the ttb will not put up to the close to 400lbs of torque thats comming out of it.

Any help would be great

Kits? I don't think there are but there may be. If you can't find one on the internet though by searching, it's probably not there.

John you should know... There is no kit for the Rangers! It's all Fab work... Although... I think we should make the kit!

They're much better candidates being steering box and coil sprung front ends with radius arms. I can't imagine such a kit being a "bolt on" though.

The sas kit for 97 and older rangers is made by Fabritech. Its not cheap and I've heard the results are mediocre at best. Youd be better off doing the fab yourself.

Almost $2K and no axle yet! I didn't spend anywhere NEAR that unless you count tools, lol -- but I can keep using the tools for other things.

I wanna see an SAS that only cost 1K. LOL


Good luck with only spending $1,000-$1,500. Have you seen what beard or Evan have spent on theres? Ever priced axles? Priced them to e rebuilt? Priced anything? Cause your not gonna do it for that cheap.


And this thread is REALLY old.

If you can Fab yourself, it can be easily done for ess than a grand, especially for 97 and older trucks. I am paying a buddy to do mine, and the labor should be around $500. I got the axle for $130, then paid $130 for gears, which I was able to set up myself. Now... I also spent $600 on an Electric locker, but since most people wont be doing that, I won't include that in the cost. All of the DOM and Rod ends cost about $500 so I will have about $1300 in the swap, but I am paying $500 for labor, so if I did all of the Fab work myself then it would only be roughly $800. So yes, it can be done for less than a grand, just depends on why type of suspension you go with (leafs or coils with links) and how much you can do yourself.
