    Get one from 3/4 ton truck. Shock mounts and spring perches are in the same location. Will need a different driveshaft or a conversion u-joint. Vans and 1 ton truck 14's are different.

    I got mine from a 1980 3/4 ton suburban and it was a perfect fit.

    I called up big time rear end dealers out of a 4-wheeler magazine and they didnt have any conversion u-joints. Who would have thought <font color="blue"> NAPA </font color> would have one in stock. /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif
