TM is dying time for solid axel swap

I have a 98 taco v6 6" TM lift but the front end is ready to give out, all the rubber is falling apart and the truck is bout 1" lower on the drivers side. rather then pay money to have the kit removed and buy a new procomp i'd like to go solid axel. Any ideas on the cheapest way to do that. anyone in the area know how to do it? any idea on the cost scale
? Thaks

You can buy a full bolt on kit from Allpro for about $9000 axle and all.

Toss the TM kit and go with a nice 3" lift. You'll be happier and likely save some cash. Or, buy an axle, a torch and a welder.

Welcome to TW. What is your priority for the conversion -- cheap or good?

If it's a dedicated trail rig, have at it and make something work. If it's a street-driven truck, make sure you do things right or we may be down a member in short order.

Keep yourself safe.

Honestly, if your willing to do your own fab and can aquire parts at a reasonable price.
$2500 will get it done.

I'd love to go, but i at least need to replace my struts before I take on hollister, cause chances are I'd end up getting towed home, in Morgan hill. I was just told today that my driver side strut needs to be replaced. I need to fing someone who knows a strut that replaces my stock on the kit and also who knows how to do it.

im in the middle of sas'n my truck now... there is no cheap way, unless you seriously know how to do your own fab work.
Trail-gear recently came out with a sas kit that is near 1500$,
axel your 100 at a junk yard
steerin box 100
drag link and control arms 200
steering knuckles near 100

grand total i think im near 4 grand into it. but as i said if you can seriously fab shit up with torch and welder you could do this. me and my buddy were doing mine realised its a bitch and now have a true shop doin it its very time consuming so with it bein in a shop price goes up everyday its there... its not something that o i dont like it let me remove it. its there and there for good...
long story short dont do it unless your serious about it!

other alternitive... fab tech 6 inch lift would replace everything with life time warrenty...

There is no such thing as a "Bolt on SAS kit".

Go talk to a local fab/4x4 shop and see what they say. I talked to a guy locally and he said that if I brought him the axle, ready to go and $3500 he would 3 link the front and supply all the other parts needed... I was looking at about the same if I bought everything seperate and did a leaf spring setup
