    If you have to ask us that question, then you're definately not ready for a SAS.

    There's a whole hell of a lot more to it than just swapping things over.

    Do you have a garage and plenty of tools? Including cutting tools/grinders and most likely a welder?

    Well for starters none of the mounts will be on the newer truck for the suspension and whatnot. Are you planning on keeping it stock height?

    I think what he wants to do is cut all the IFS stuff off the 86, cut all the SFA stuff off the 83, and put the 83s stuff on the 86.

    It won't be too hard to do especially with a donor. You'll need to get a SAS kit that comes with a spring hanger for the front and shackles etc... they are relatively inexpensive.

    You are also definitely going to want to put crossover steering on.
