    I almost freakin bid on this til I noticed the drop is driver side, I was gonna just bid hella high and be done with it, sure glad I noticed this, am i right here in my eyesight? if you notice the tierods always go to the outside, so that means that the drop is driverside!
    BUT... the one in the background looks like a Dodge /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Yeah I've been looking at that one too, but I'm almost 100% sure it's a Chevy and it's just upside down. I don't see any spring perches on it the way it is sitting. Also, the tie rod ends usually bolt in from the top, but this bolts in from the bottom, so I definitely think it's just upside down. Could be wrong though hehe

    looks like a p side drop to me, look at the tie rod, its uposide down, so the axle is flipped, if u roll it, it will be a d side.

    That is a GM D60... just laying upside down. (The one in the back is also GM, rightside up)

    Look at the shock mounts... definitely GM.

    Look at the brakes... definitely not Ford.

    That seller name "botec corp" has me wondering who this actually is as I've seen that name on eBay and some of the government auction sites.
    I've always wondered if that was someone associated with Boyce Equipment, but I do know on the government auction sites, Boyce has their username as BEPCO.

    Anybody know who this "botec corp" is? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    I have wondered that too. I have been outbid on a few D60 parts by them/him /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif But I did outbid them on something that I really wanted. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif They are buying and selling 60 parts all the time.

    ya, he told me $ 375.00 to ship to Seattle and he REFUSES to drive 2.5 hours to Forward Air dock, he wants to use some spendy place.so he can count me out, i can spend less local.

    I can understand his position. The nearest forward air for me is 2.5 hrs as well. Round trip 5 hrs, atleast 1 hr in metro detroit airport(never been there). He would blow an entire day and not get any $ for his time. For 6-8 hrs on the weekend I'd sell it locally for less and still be even, or drive less than 1 hr to a local, but more expensive, carrier.
