    Correct me if I\'m wrong please.

    When going to a Dana 60 from a Dana 44, is there any lift difference ??? I could have sworn someone said the front will sit 1" higher. Is this correct ???

    Not really, about the same, maybe you gain the 3/8" that the tube is taller.

    I'd say it's closer to 3/4". I did the 57" spring swap and my truck sat level with the old D44 up front. It may have been 1/4" low in the rear...now it sits close to an inch low in the rear after the D60 got swapped. Funny thing is I swapped the diesel in at the same time. I guess my front springs are so damn stiff they didn't sag any...

    I'm still thinking about either adding a leaf, flipping the overload back to normal or adding a zero-rate. Haven't decided yet.

    I thought it was 1" for both a front D60 and rear 14BFF. My rear sure came up a waise when I swapped in my 14B. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
