parts you need are, complete sj axle (with springs) and a z bar for the steering. then basicly remove the front wishbones, spring preches and axle from the vit. then push the sj axle under the vit (with tyres on) and decide where you want it, i.e do you want to move the whels forward a bit Very Happy . then make a u bracket's for the ends of the leaf springs, the brake lines fit sj calipers. then make some towers for the shock absorbers and fit a propshaft...... job done Very Happy


front of my vit with sj axle.

it was fairly easy to do as long as you or someone you know can weld Very Happy

when you pull the shaft out of the diff (youll lose some oil) youll see theseal there.

just carefully rip it out and gently tap the new one into place.

shaft back in and voila, jobs a goodun
