Austin took a GM 14-bolt axle and made it into a front steer axle. The spindles, hubs, and brakes are all from a Dana 60, and the “C’s” and knuckles are Reid Racing components. The axle is fitted with RCV axleshafts, 5.13 gears, and an ARB Air Locker. Locating the axle is a four-link system and the links are made from 2-inch-diameter, 0.375-inch-wall tubing with Summit Machine rebuildable rod ends. The suspension includes a pair of Fox 16-inch-travel remote-reservoir coilovers and Fox 4-inch-travel bumpstops. No matter what the terrain, aiming the front tires is easy thanks to a hydraulic steering system that includes a PSC double-ended hydraulic ram and Why Not Customs high-steer arms.
