    That's pretty rusty & scuzzy looking. Not much of an upgrade. I'll trade you a nice, clean, POR-15'd 10 bolt for it.

    3 ubolts and 2 bolts holding it to the springs for a 60... 4 bolt steering arm vs a 3 bolt on a D44/10 bolt.

    yea but i have some obscure local ones...in fact i was going to get it for $199, which is their listed price for front axles...on a monday would be half off--$100, then they crushed the truck before i grabbed it :( It was a K5 with 8 lug swap that was rusty
