This ORU bolt-on conversion kit includes all the necessary brackets to convert independent front suspension (IFS) to a solid axle system. The solid axle system accommodates a taller lift and larger tires while providing more articulation than IFS. The solid axle with locking hubs can be equipped with a limited slip or locking differential for greater off-road capabilities. Moving parts and maintenance are greatly reduced. For a premium ride, order one of our new "+6" kits that utilize a 6" longer front spring.

This kit is designed for 46" & 52" long leaf springs (ORU Springs or any other Aftermarket Springs) Fits axles with a 36.5" spring pad width You need to include an additional 3" of lift when choosing your spring - Example 6" spring +3” equals 9" of total lift Installation of this kit will move the front axle forward 1”
