Hey yall, I'm going to post a full build thread when I get the time to do it. But let's talk Solid front axle swapped 88-98 GM's!
Here is my 99 on tons. Now has a 12 valve.
I'm still working on my 98 tahoe.. it's about 8 inches lift, 03 super duty axles.. hp60 front, high steer, tie rods, drag links, modded steering box,, pitman arm, panhard bar..4 inch 52's up front, sterling 10.5 in rear, shackle flip, fuct up rear springs with a few extra leafs a over load and a small block to get it level.. long 3 hole spring perches to push axle back a inch.. still need to do the rear springs and frame mounts... did np241c swap, new motor, new trans.. I have been driving it about 2 years now.. have about 14kmiles on it..I still need tires, wheels, gears and lockers.. just finally got the front shaft in.. the rear was done first to get me driving when I had to give up my other daily drivers..kids n stuff coming in age.. I tow a boat so wasn't really worried about the lack of rear flex but it definitely needs to be addressed soon as it sucks.. there was a lot more that went into it.. a lot more to go..
FWIW you can unscrew the actuator put some sockets in the hole and screw it back in and you'll have 4x4 again.It really sucks when your kid calls with his lifted cr-v stuck in the mud,, you go to pull him out and the stupid front diff actuator doesn't engage..again.
