Question Would PUMA axles be a direct bolt on to NAS 110?

I was replacing the wheel cylinders on my 110 and instead of doing the parts swap, maybe it would be easier just to buy a PUMA axle and do the switch over. Does anyone know if its a direct swap? I would imagine for brake line you just attach the flexible brake line hose.

I would imagine PUMA axles are much better than my old Salisbury? Would it be difficult to source brake pads / rotors etc? Would RDS or Safari parts have one? I appreciate the help.

With the correct length driveshaft (propshaft).... Pumas use Rover rear axles with P38 diffs, so the driveshaft needs to be longer. Most would consider it a big downgrade from the salisbury axle.

If I have to extend the rear propshaft forget it then. I thought it was a direct bolt on.

If you got a 300TDI era rear axle, it would be fine. Salisbury center and disc brakes. You can also convert the current axle to disc brakes, if you want.

Great reading thanks! I think I will stick with salisbury than rebuild with disc brakes since Salisbury is stronger.
