I have been trying for quite some time now to get everything finished for the one ton rear swap and the 44 gettting put up front but it seems like everytime I make some progress I find out that I actually have been set back. The biggest problem is that with the 44 up front my front driveshaft doesn't reach the yoke. unexpeced to find this out and shocked when I was qouted 180 bucks to lengthen the shaft. The 44 isn't even worth that kind of money! I was wondering if I could take a shaft off another truck at the yard that would atlest be close or too long so I can shorten it. I have to tell you that I am not doing the work on the truck I got some highschool kids to do it in class. They are not very knowlegable but there is a teacher there that hopefully make sure everything goes alraight. One more question: can I just get spring plates from the junk yard for the new 14b? Sorry it is a long post. Thanks in advance for any input.
