Salisbury front axle

Anybody got any idea what a Salisbury front axle is worth? I am talking everything needed to convert the truck and the axle is complete and ready to bolt in. I guess I am asking what is a fair price for this type of set up?

Thats a tough one because it definitely has value but the market is probably limited. That being said, you could probably ask as much as $2k for it but may have to wait a while for the right buyer.

Or unload it quick for $750 or so to someone with a parts addiction.

I assume it is RHD.

Do you have the front driveshaft to go with it? What engine/trans did the axle come from? RHD or LHD?

I would think a LHD sals front with the right drive shaft and good brakes could command $2k, but a RHD that needed some work $750 would be all the money.

The brake parts are crazy money if they are the armoured car big brake variety.

I understand them all to use NAS 110 type cvs and swivels with the armourded ones using big brakes.

I have seen one in person so don't take this as gospel.

Isn't the brake issue just a case of swapping the expensive rotors and calipers out for something more common and reasonably priced as well? Say a D90 vented front set up or something? Unless they are going on another armored truck of course.

Let assume its RHD, the axle is ready to bolt in: bearing,seals,pads,rotors,calipers and painted. Including radius arms,drive shaft, drive flange and all steering components good. Ready to go. Just bolt the kit in. Price for the RHD? Price for the LHD?

Also please tell me how and where I could find answers to all of the questions you fine chaps have brought up.

Atlcruiser had sets front and rear with most of the same bits for $2100

You would think that buying from a private party the price would be lower than that of a business.

Gosh if you can find any 110 LHD swivels anywhere I'm a buyer.

I am sure the ones from urban where not gone through and in bolt in condition. I never said I was selling any or even have any. I was just wondering as I am considering finding one for myself.
I guess some of the questions that have been brought up are things to consider before I do it.
Thanks all.
Any more insight is welcome.

I wouldn't bother when you can build a pegged, locked rover diff and put in HD shafts and CVs for similar money.
