And if he searched before asking, he would have found a TON on this topic that will help quite a bit. That's all that was being pointed out. It is generally considered a poor way of going about things asking before looking around.

As stated, all you need to do is use the search. This is just stuff from page 1 of 5 in results dealing with SAS...

http://www.fordrangerforum.com/proje...ild-thred.html
http://www.fordrangerforum.com/proje...axle-swap.html

and here is a link from another hit on the first page...
http://www.therangerstation.com/foru...ad.php?t=31292

There are also other ranger forums that have this info as well like RangerLuc said.
Also, check below the quick reply box, there are related threads that are showing 5 axle swap threads right now....

This is the research that was suggested you do before you ask questions. With about 10 seconds of work I found this information for you. Imagine what you could do if you took the time to look since you actually care about how to do an SAS.

idk what kind of research you do, obviously not a lot but it doesnt mean ask questions, it means look up answers and reSEARCH. see, its right there in the word
