A leaf spring setup would be possible, but I doubt it could be done at current ride height without a serious drop axle and a lot if frame work to make room for the drop axle. And then it would still cost more than just buying the right axle....

The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......

Owning machine shop should have enough savvy to change out axles, as axles from Colin Hyde are simple bolt up w/no mods for year of your AS. I changed mine by my self w/no help at 78 yrs. old and I'm not a mechanic just do what I want to do. complete axles deliv. to bus address I believe were well under $2000.00 from Colin Just remember if doing work your self install shocks on axle before putting axles up to frame, don't ask me how I no this, and only make mistake one time.
