6 of 47
Up front is a 2 1/2-ton Rockwell axle with an Ouverson Violator locker; Violator 2-inch-diameter, 47-spline axleshafts; and Violator billet U-joints. It’s located by a basic four-link setup using 1.75-inch-diameter, 0.250-inch-wall upper links and 2.25-inch-diameter, 0.600-inch-wall lower links. QA1 11/4-inch spherical rod ends are used on each link. The axle is suspended by 16-inch-travel King triple-rate remote-reservoir coilovers and it uses King nitrogen bumpstops. The steering system is a Custom Differentials-fabbed hydraulic system with a double-ended ram. A Driveshafts Unlimited driveshaft with 1410 U-joints spins the axle’s internals and a pinion-mount Custom Differentials 2 1/2-ton Wilwood brake kit brings them to a stop.
