    1 tons have a different spring width, namely where on the axle they mount, thats why there is a seperate 1 ton flip it has to have different measurements. So no it won't work on your 1/2 ton frame, front axle has no bearing /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Yup, you need the standard 1/2T or 3/4T flip and you'll have to move the spring perches on the axle to 42.5" center to center.
    The D60 front will bolt to whatever you have in the front, they bolt up just like the 10 bolt/D44.
