    They'll bolt right on. [​IMG]

    A Dana 44 or 10-bolt front axle will have 3 bolts holding the steering arm to the knuckle. A Dana 60 will have 4-bolts holding the steering arm to the knuckle.

    3/4 ton will, but I think you have to move the spring perches and shock mounts on the one ton stuff.

    My Chevy isn't broken, its just out of gas.

    Yep, I was thinking about the front. For the rear, if it is indeed a 1-ton, then you have to move the spring perches and perhaps the shock mounts. A 45 minute job for a decent welding shop. [​IMG]
