It's an 80's scout front and rear end, the rear end has been gone thorugh with a posi installed. Comments??
 
A Scout front end isn't worth the powder to blow it to Hell. The rear end is fairly good.

Neither is a bolt in deal.
 
Why is the scout front end not so desirable?
Because they come from the factory with 0* caster.
You have to cut the C's off and reweld them on to have the correct caster.

That's one way.

Others are:

shims on the spring mounts​

adjusting shackles (within reason)​

You need to look at the entire system.

I passed on Scout axles because the tube wall thickness is not as heavy as some.

It doesn't take much to put 5x5-1/2 rotors on a Dana 44 Cherokee/ Wagoneer 6x5-1/2 wheel bolt pattern. Does the Scout axle have discs? Sooner or later you'll want to upgrade. :D
 
from what my friend tells me all the brakes are brand new.
