Solid Front Axle (SFA) Swap: OBS Chevy with Chevy 1 Ton Axles

GARD Pro Not Registered

This buildup shows the rebuilds of Chevy one ton axles and the fitment of them into an 88-98 body style Chevy truck originally equipped with independent front suspension (IFS). This is commonly referred to as a solid axle swap (SAS) using a solid front axle (SFA). The use of Chevy axles is preferable to Ford axles to some as the Chevy axles are easier to find and cheaper generally. The downside is that the front axle’€™s pinion is on the passenger side and therefore requires a passenger drop transfer case to work.
