    Instead of doing a SAS any body thought of going with the Atomic axles. I know they high. Look like they maybe a little better than a solid axle and more ground clearence. Just thought I could throw that in there.

    Atomic axle are solid axles you would still have to do the swap just like another axle. Atomics just have a CV axle in the housing to give that high clearance.
