i am doing a sas conversion on a 1999 s10 4x4 I have purchased a set of 2004 ford superduty axles to throw under it. I am curious if anyone has done this same build with these axles and what they did to mount the leaf springs because of the perch width (i dont want to cut the axle down i want the most width i can get) and what springs they used. i am probably going to use 35" tires but want to be able to put on 38" if get a little low on myself esteem. I was also curious on what pitman arm and steering box should I use. Will my stock brake master cylinder be enough to stop these axles?

SAS is pretty common around the ca/nm/az/nv areas. the questions you have are all pretty basic, and some of your questions are good, but also something that shows you are either gathering information or don't have any fabrication abilities to take on such a job. There are a few good off road forums to get your questions answered in length. i believe Pirate 4x4 is the name, but i'll post back in here tomorrow once i get back to my personal computer to look it up.

Those axles are very common for what you're doing. Mounting the leaf springs is basic fabrication stuff, and all your other questions have been answered either in the sticky threads in this section, or in the build threads. Read through those and, if you still have questions, somebody will be happy to answer them.

BTW, there's no single "right" way to do things. Everybody's build is different.
