Suspension Question (swap from my RRC to the 90)

So I had a brain fart and was going over the stuff that will be happening with the 90 and started thinking about cannibalizing the Classic for its suspension.

The 90 has the typical OME HD front and back setup (spring and shocks).

The Classic has a Pre 3-Link Stage III setup on it. I'm thinking everything is essentially the same. Can I put the SG suspension off the Classic on the 90 and take the OME setup and stock trailing arms and radius arms and use them on the Classic?

Good deal. It's really not necessary on the Classic and if I swap out the OME stuff on it then it will have the same road manners as the '95 Classic...which is a lot better. I don't mind the 90 being a little irrational to drive

I swapped my 3rd link from my Disco onto my project D90, the years were different and the crossmember had holes in a different place but other than that it was straight forward. I also have extra arms if you need them front and rear, sway bars too.

Keith, I may enlist your help on this project. I figure I'll rebuild the shocks when I've got everything apart.

let me know, I'll be dragging the 90 to the monster garage to try and sort the wiring issues, hopefully someone there will have a clue about the tcase connections.

I think quite a few people are planning on coming so hopefully there will be. I'll bring the 90 but we can talk about the swap while we're there.
