Both were bought at least 6 months back and I haven't found anyone until recently who would take my money and sell me a coil kit
I have axle dilemma as well, my van has 50k miles and the existing rear axle(4.10 ratio semi float) looks so great and shiny, I almost feel like keeping it in and just match the front axle ratio to it. But then I think about how awesome the full floats will be and they have larger diameter disc brakes.
I have a 2007 PSD van.
Haha, I was in a similar position, I bought a vehicle specifically to convert using an MG kit and then opps, not available.
On a previous conversion I had a 3.73 limited slip rear so I purchased a 3.73 front. I ran the van rear for 3 years until I believed the rear end was going out then went with the Sterling then.
You have to mod the rear driveshaft twice, once for the transfer case, and again for the sterling rear. You also will have to buy wheel adaptors temporarily while running the van rear.
If you match the front ratio to the 4.10 rear you wouldn't be able to buy a Sterling with a 4.10. In your case you would just regear the rear to 4.10 which you would have to do anyways with already buying a 3.73
btw that previous conversion was a 4" ujoint kit, http://https://www.expeditionportal....ersion.147902/
So what are the part#'s for the shocks? Fox? Bilstein?
Maybe this on the parts spreadsheet, I don't see that in my stuff from MG
