  • scout 2 xlc building advice.

    Howdy, I have been lucky enough to acquire a 75 Scout 2 XLC with dana 44's a t-19 and a dana 300, i am also putting a 392 which i acquired into it. my question is. what would be the best spring setup to go with if i want to fit 34x9.5 tsl's and have plenty of rear drop. also cv shafts who do you recommend to get some.
    are there any good sources or tips to convert all 4 wheels to discs? have any of you heard of a kluneV and their applications in scouts? any information regarding these many questions would be greatly appreciated! thanks for your time and patience!

    You need to give a little more to go on. Is this for a trail rig, street rig, how much of each? If you plan on taking it on the trails, I would go spring over axle and keep the stock springs. It will give just about 5-6 inches. If you want more than add a 1-2 inch body lift. Just watch how high you make it.(roll overs) You will have to rotate the pinions toward the transfer case to reduce the angle so you should put a CV at least on the rear driveshaft. I don't drive on the road in 4wd so I don't run a front CV.
    As for disc...you can go all scout parts http://www.off-road.com/~jweed/discrear.htm or a conversion like TSM or SS brakes. It's all about money!!!
    As for the klune...I've seen them but can't afford them.....
