Re: D60 leaf or coil

Maybe with chrome-moly shafts and super-heavy-duty ujoints, but then youll just end up blowing your r&p. Basically, no, a 44 wont last long turning 39s. Especially if you intend to 'wheel it.

IMO, your best bet is just to do a shackle reversal with a leaf-sprung D60. I know of someone who slung a D60 with coils under his 79 (a buddy of MY2ND78, actually), and while it looks killer, and seems to work ok, i dont think its worth the effort.
