(of Course you can convert one over) A regular axle will fit right up to a 110 the only thing you need is the bottom bolt on perch as it is a larger diameter. You will get everything back and more if you install a new galvy chassis. (if you ever sell it)
I don't really see the need for a sals rear. Wouldn't a built 90 rear ( upgraded diff like an arb, Ashcroft, or true trac) along with a set of hd axles be just fine for almost anything?

On the 110 build I am doing now that is what I did, use a regular Disco axle. The driveshaft will have to be lengthened. Parts are easier to source and you can easily replace the third if you ever have any problems. The salisbury is like a Dana 60 where you have to take everything out of the back. The pumpkin on the Sals is stronger but a cap, diff guard, on a regular axle seems to be fine. Indeed the axle on the sals is larger but I do not think as strong as a HD shaft in a regular axle. The outside tubes on the sals seem to be the same dimensions as the regular axle. You can also make the 110 lower spring mount plate for the regular axle or purchase them.

Isn't it true that the Sals can be upgrades to some mighty thick axles?

Newer 110s(2005+) come with a P38 rear end FYI.

Do not read the next sentence.

You little rebel, I like you.
