    From what I can remember, the Dodge Dana 60 is 2 inches shorter at the spring perches but otherwise the same. I remember people saying that they pushed thier spring packs in to absorb the difference... any long term effects, likes, dislikes, or workarounds?

    I thought there was spacer to use at the spring bushing that someone on here makes to compensate for the difference? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
    I'd be interested in more info and pics too.

    According to the article on pirate 4x4, it's a 1/2" difference.

    your spreading ths springs apart.... 1/2 inch difference. Azkickin Offroad was talking about making offset bushings that move your springs apart a 1/4 inch on each side.
