Default 1995 chevy sas

I have started a solid axle swap for my truck, i plan on using 52 in. Rear spngs off an 1987, i have a dana 44,and a corp. 14 bolt for the rear, i plan on using the front leaf sping buckets from the rear of a1980 chevy truck, for the rear mounts and fabing up the front, i was wondering if i could get some pics of other people sas front mounts,not to copy,but to get some ideas! And the steering?????? Any other info also would be greatly appreciated.

here is my front crossmember I used a king pin dana 60 from a 86 ford. that is why my mounts are on the outside of the frame. with a 205 you might have some problems with the speedometer. let me know if you have more questions or would like more pics.

If you are keeping the stock trans(and assuming it is an auto), it will not shift if you install the np205 or and tcase without a gas on the tail housing. If yu want a pass drop axle you wi have to find a np241 out of a 90-91 chevy/gmc suv.

Dana 44 or Dana 60 from a 1978-1979 F250/F350.

Im using a Dana 44 front center from 78 F250, Chevy Dana 44 flat top knuckles and Chevy/Jeep 6 lug outers.
