this is NOT a kit for a novice to attempt to install in any way shape or form. A compitent fabber with SA experience and a good knowleged of what all is involved with a swap should have no trouble with it, however.

AP has the kit for a D44 BUT that must be an axle that has been set up the same way that their demo unit was set up to work. Also, there are several different versions of the D44 and they won't all work quite the same with any kit.

With the exception of the complete AP kit including their hybrid axle there seem to be a lot of bugs yet to be worked out.

If you are looking for a cheap, "bolt-on" solid axle that any idiot can install, stop now.

it seems to be very difficult, i have a very addiquite shop perfect for the fabrication. i definately know its not going to be a swap that any idiot can bolt up.

then if you've done the needed research on how the SA works and how the geometry works/needs to work the only thing stopping you is $$ ;)

but, if you really want the kit and plan on using any axle other than the AP hybrid I suggest you wait until the bugs worked out of the D44 and Diamond applications.

i can't wait to dive into this bee's nest. i was nervouse, but now i'm actually excited to tear it appart. i've seen some of the problems and come up with some solutions that i think will make it go alittle faster, or atleast cut back on some of the backtracking. and redoing of the same thing over again. but i have been waiting for just over a week for the kit, and i thought i was going to do this some time in the spring but i can't wait. once all the parts are in, i'm cutting.

Fabrication is only half or less of the story. It's suspension geometry, getting everything working togeter as it should and the suspension tuned is where the difficutly comes in.
