    Any body know the distance from center pin to center pin on the rear springs. I got a one ton 14b and had to cut the perches and move them. i got jacks under the springs so it really isn't worthe measuring them seeing that they are probably in a bind. So whose got an exact measurement ? thanks

    The way I did my axle was to measure from the backing plate mount for the brakes; the little square part at the end of the axle tube. The measurement I believe from the plate mount to the outter part of the perch was 4 3/8". This is what I did and the centering pins slid right into the perches.

    All you have to do now is figure out your pinion angle.
