    Aurora's not a pick-n-pull. It's a U-pull-it. Same principle, but maybe a bit higher prices. I've got a buddy that knows of a "goldmine" small yard in Oswego. Should be checking that out with him soon. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    got back from the Pick N Pull's (Summit and Hammond).
    the Hammond location didnt have a whole helluva alot as far as front axles, but there was quite a few NP205 laying around.
    the Summit location doesnt really have too much in the 73-91 chevy trucks. but they do have a 73 k5 there that has a dana 44 that HAD flat tops, (cant beat left and right knuckles for $25).
    they also have a couple of "newer" K5 there that still have axles on them.
    also a few dodges with dana 44's with flat tops.
    i would of snagged those also but have heard that it has to be a certain year dodge for the knuckles to work.
    anyway, good luck.

    I didn't make it out there...

    Forgot that Tyler had a few parts that i'm looking for. You didn't happen to notice if either location had a K5 with a manual rear window? I want to convert my electric on the cheap.
