Re: help doing 9 inch lift and dana 30 sas
yeah i wouldnt mess with it with the 30, its too weak, the guy probably took it out of his jeep so he could beef the axle up, i guess you could beef the hell out of the axle but in my opinion its not worth it, you would have to gusset the axle a lot, buy new inners and outers, get a built third or build it yourself, all in all you would end up dumping more money in it than if you just slapped a stock 44 in it.
or if you dont have that kind of money, sell your 30 and save up for an ifs kit for now, with the right suspension in those, they wheel great.
