    I might know the answer, but I wont give it to anyone that sored a D60 for $300. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Actually, I dont know the answer because the closest I have come to having a D60 on my truck is when I parked beside a HD dodge at the mall. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Don't need dust shields, knuckles on out are the same from Dodge to GM.
