    Wondering if anyone has done this. I called and asked them and they said they only made them for 1/2 and 3/4. I know as long as I get the 56" rear springs I'm fine but I was wondering if the shocks would fit right or not(maybe different size mounting holes,bolts and or them being the right length or not) And I got spare u-bolts if since they are different. Any help is appreciated cuz I will order it tomorrow if it works. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Well what size axle do they consider for the 3/4 ton?
    I would say it should be the same as the one ton, except maybe the front if it's a D60.
    I guess you should be OK and if you need bigger U bolts for the D60 like you said you can get those.
    Otherwise I don't think you have a problem.

    Only major differences I can think of are the rear shock mounts are on opposite sides of the axle and the K30 has a heavier load capacity.
