    Hey guys,

    The D60 is installed..........went extremely well. Couple of problems.............the stainless brake lines ORD sent did not have a big enough hole for the bolt to the calipers..........gonna drill it out, then flush the brake lines with compressed air from the master cylinder for any possible metal shavings.............no big deal.

    Question about the drag link...........how do you figure the length to be correct? By "shortening" the original one for my '79 10 bolt one till you hit the "stops"????? Help...........thanks.

    14FF gets installed tomorrow..................then we be done! One ton conversion will be complete..............damn I'm tired! 5 hours tonite.............those brake lines to the frame rails are a bit%# with headers!

    i have a Superlift 2" droped draglink on my old d44 and i only had to screw it in an inch or so to make it work on my d60, not sure about the stock 10 bolt but should be same size. And those brake lines at the frame rails do suck with headers you can't even fit your damn hand in there.
