Re: how many of you have 3/4 tons with 8 lugg dana
long loooooong time comeing, I resisted the urge to toss a ifs lift on the truck on quite a few acasions when I had the cash,
these are the parts I have right now, a 78 ford dana44 and 14ff rear from 93 suburban, along with the oru brackets. all these parts are sitn here and waitn to go under the truck,
yeah the rear will have a detroit and 410s the front will probly stay open for now incase I find a good deal on d60. I want to swap from ford parts to chevy parts. might find me 8 lug chevy dana 44 for parts, or swing a deal with the salvage yard to put the ford parts back on the chevy axle.
the only things I dont have right now are springs, steering, brake lines. wheels, and other misilanios stuff I cant think of right now
tommorrow I might work on getn the rear oru spring hangers on the truck, and route my exhaustr around them. then fronts can be slapped on when the swap is done, getn the rears on no will save me lots of time when I get to doing the rest of the stuff.
ohhhhhh I also need my rear shacle reversal from ord. and 1.5" or 2.5" adaleaf.
