hi pinion ford dana 44 or hi pinion ford dana 60. depends on desired tire size, and how your gonna use it. the high pinion 44 could be easily matched to the rear 6 lug axle by swapping on old chevy outers. the d44 is way cheaper. are you gonna run leafs in front, radius arms, or link it? leafs or old ford radius arms are pretty cheap and easy to work with. if it was me, and i was gonna run 35's or mabey 37's, i would get a hi pinion 44 radius arm axle and run that. its cheap, easy to convert, and fairly strong. if you wanna go hog wild, look for a hi pinion 60, and look at a cage sas kit. good luck

i did a sas on my blazer last year. lot different now. (s10 cab, 8 lugs etc) but its really a broad subject your on here. I started with ord's leaf spring kit and a 30/8.25 for axles on 36s. if had to do it again and my suggestion to you is for a cost effecient street/trail rig. do a cherokee style long arm or a 3 link with coil springs and spring over in the rear
