    Okay got an axle swap comming up on the K5 and I need to remove the shims as they won't work with this new axle. I have 4" BDS front springs and need to know what center pin to get.

    PS for those that have... Just how bad is the steering with no correction and a 4" lift. Can I run it (and wheel it) for a few weeks without ticking myself off? Or am I just kidding myself? (After I recover from the axle/locker purchase I will get x-over)

    You need a center pin that fits the whole in your leaf springs and had the correct head size to fit in your D60. Its simple. Get a new battery in your micrometer and go to work with your trusty calculator. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    P.S. I dont think your insurance company would like to know you drive and do temperature conversions on your calculator at the same time. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Ya the pro comps I put in the crew cab had a small pin, 5/16. I got the 3/8 and had to drill the whole friggin' pack on a sunday. I don't want to go through that again. I know the pin size for the spring pad I just need to know if the threads are a 5/16 or 3/8.

    PS shawn I want a locker befor x-over. They are both $300 items. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
