I used the drop cast front axle from a 2001 LDV crew cab on my Rat.
Cut about 10″ from the middle (to keep the wheel base the same as the back axle), welded it back together with special cast rods, and a plate bolted through to keep it strong. Looking for the industrial-chunky look on my Rat.
Well the purpose of this topic was to share the below.
Did you know that the 6 bolt P.C.D. on a London cab is the same as the P.C.D. on a LDV van. More luck than judgement on my part, I can use the wheel rims from my cab.
