    i moved the springs to the stock position for now, until my front crossmember is in( this tuesday)

    i didnt want to spend much cash on the dana 44, hence no crossover, im going dana 60 soon soon with hydro/crossover

    Id like to see how well the dana 44 holds up to wheelin. Im putting one in the front of my truck this winter and a lot of people say im wasting my time, but its what I got now and I got it with a 14bff for $200 so I cant complain.
