    I was talking to a guy about D60's and he was saying that there was very little difference between them, is this ture or is he full of it. Getting deserate for my D60........got one? let's talk. Also anyone that has a shopping list of things to get when installing one would be nice. Thanks

    the spring pearches are slightly different all i did was spread my springs apart my about 1/4 inch and it fit right in
    things you will need or want to check are
    1. make sure the u-bolts are the right size
    2. make sure the u-joint on your front driveline is the same i had to get a chevy yoke $25
    3. you will need a chevy steering arm (i got one from a local shop for $40 that does crosover steering)
    4. make sure your break lines fit the dodge callipers (i needed extended breaklines anyway but i got them for a 10bolt and they worked for mine)
    5. if you want to keep your swaybar you will need to get chevy spring plates as chevy ataches the swaybar to them and dodge dont ( i ditched mine and have had no problems)
    if steve is interested im going to do a wright up on my dodge to chevy install next week if you have any other ????? just ask
