    I just bolted on a 14 FF and D60 to my 91 Burb, but I have no idea what an ecoflip is (rear shackle flip?). If you need any info. on the axle installs, I'll be happy to help.

    you will also need to re-locate the shock mounts on the 14bolt. They are to narow amd on the wrong sides.

    i did the same thing with the military axles in my 85 burb, the front dance's right into place. but the rear like was said needs the perches moved in. also i reused my spring plates in back but you need to torch them out to get the wider u-bolt in... one ton subs rule /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
