Tell me why this won't work alloys on salisbury rear

I want to cut down the end of the axle and use a front drive member off of a D90/RRC/DI and the non-ABS hubs and the disc brake brackets and everything else.

based on what I found when doing my front 24 spline conversion to my 84, I think that at least as far as the hubs go, you will be fine as long as the spindles, hubs, and drive flanges are from the same axle generation. my late 24 spline flanges would not work on the early 10 spline hubs and vice versa. on the old hubs the stub axle protrudes about 1/2" form the flange/hub mating surface and so the drive flange has a deeper recess to accomodate this. the later 24 spline hubs stick out further so combining the new hub and old drive flange will leave you unable to fit the snap ring among other problems.

hope that helps...

You can run alloys on the salsbury rear - as long as you don't expect to have center caps

I'd be willing to bet a "bump out" center cap is available in the UK somewhere. We can't be the first people to want to do this.

Spacers big enough to not needs caps are very pricey. You could swap axles out for less.
