Yeah, well, the splines at the box could be different and yield a different part number, but i've got a plan. I've got my old pitman arm in the garage, I'm just gonna take that with me and see if the stud in the drag link fits the arm. If not, hopefully I just need to drill out the arm for a bigger hole. Figuring out how to get the trac bar bracket secure is probably going to be the hardest part, thus I'll do it first so I can put the TTB back on if need be, but i'll make every effort to have a solid D44 under there by the end of my xmas break. Shock mounts will probably be custom too but shouldn't be too critical. Should come out fairly cheap too:
Axle - $150
7* bushings - $45
tracbar bracket - $22
Superlift Coils - $125 (for the pair! good deal compared to leafs)
Brake lines - $80 (i think)
Not too bad... might get the axle free if i ask nice, who knows
I've got about twice that saved up for this project so if incidental expenses come up it's not going to be a problem.
Hmm, does anybody know if the D44 and D44IFS have the same drive flanges?
thanks for the help and inspiration guys, hopefully this will actually happen (finally!)
