2 wheel drive to 4 wheel drive running gear swap
Posted 25 June 2011 - 10:47 AM
I would like to know if I can install a 4 wheel drive transmission and driveline from a salvaged one of the same or roughly the same vintage. Does anyone have any information along these lines?
Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can search and find plenty of examples
yes, a whole donor car is best
yes, it is all bolt- in except for having to make a carrier bearing mount, and drill some holes for the rear diff
I have done several

Since I know this will work now I will go ahead and lift it and put a few of the other off-road accessories on it. Do you know of a good reputable supplier for about a 3 inch lift kit?
What tire and wheel size would you recommend that would bolt right up? I want to go a bit larger but don't want to bog it down too much and don't want to have to cut the wheel wells.

wagon coupe or sedan they all use the same floor pan so all the running gear will work.
Lift kits there are a few people on here that make them a 3 inch should be no problem and you can depending on your skill level make a simple 3 inch at home.
The search function here is a wonderful option and many answers can be had by using it.
