I thought they were keeping the solid front axles???

Unless he knows something we don't, I can't see DC spending a lot of money to design an IFS to go under the 2500 and up trucks, when they just signed a new contract with AAM Co to put their solid axles under the front. Especially considering that 9.25" front axle is brand new, only application used is the 03+ Ram 2500's and 3500's.
It does suck that Dodge went to IFS for the half tons. Their D44's aren't the greatest with CAD, multipeice axle shafts, vacuum lines, and the wonderful unitized hub/bearings, but they are better than IFS any day. Oh well, guess I'll have to buy a Super Duty as my next new fullsize. D60 with manual hubs............mmmmmmmmm................... [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
