Let me guess, did you ask a bunch of generic questions and expect specific answers?

Why do ypu want to do an SAS? I've owned 5 fullsize Broncos I thought the Dana 44IFS versions wheeled the best especially on uneven terrain like nasty rutted hillclimbs. On the road I preferred the 79XLT I had, but off road it just seemed too heavy. My stock 81 did wear the tires but after I lifted it a couple inches and put airlift airbags in the front coils that issue was solved. I had 3 IFS Broncos and wore out 2 sets of ball joints and 1 u-joint in about 250k miles. Unless I was going to run tires over 35" I would just keep the IFS.

x2, and If did do a SAS, I would only do a D60, not a 78-79 D44.

The 92-96 broncos are a bit harder to do because of that stupid accordion frame just behind the bumper. After you box that, the rest should be just measuring.
