    Where can i buy the driver side front spring perch? The Dana 60 i bought has a bent perch and I was going to try and cut it and bend it back and weld it back together but I figure a new perch would just be better and easier.

    take 1 section about 5" long of 2.5x2.5 square tube 1/4 thick. cap ends off. and cut arch in tube and then put center pin hole in the top. this will be stronger than any stock perch. kind of like this one.

    Thanks for the idea, that is probably what I will do since I have still not been able to find a stock replacement.
