Default SAS Suburban

So I have a mid 90's suburban. I want to do a sas swap. What would be the ideal front axle? My uncle has a junk yard and I can get what ever Dana 60 I want. Ford Chevy or dodge. Now the other thing is that the suburban has electric push button t case. I want to swap it to a manual shift t case at the same time. Current drive train is a 454/4l80e. But that will be getting swapped also for a duramax lbz and Allison 1000 trans. But the Allison I have is 2wd so I want to run a divorced t case. Any thoughts or options that I have not thought of? Also the lbz I have is in a wrecked 2007 classic gmc wt.

if you can find a hp d60, I'd do that.

as far as tcase goes, I'd probably lean towards a np205 or an atlas depending on what you can afford for the build

The 78-79 Ford Dana 60 is a high pinion unit, drivers side drop and is the proper width so the leaf spring conversion will bolt up. This is the best axle for that conversion. If you use a passenger drop t-case, then look for a 1977-1991 Chevy Dana 60 as it is the same spring pad width as the 78-79 Ford.
