    Well after two weeks of junkyard wars (wrong gears -- didn't check til after install, bad sealing surface and brakes ...) I finally got my 14 bolt and 8 lug front in. It was almost as hard as getting the 3 CK5 stickers lined up.

    Phase 2 is a shackle flip, Dana 60, Detriot (rear) and some lift springs up front.

    I want to move the dana 60 forward about an inch but I don't want to use a zero rate type block. Has anyone re-drilled the center bolt hole in the springs -- and what are your opinions on doing it this way? Are there any lurking issues I should consider first?
    I don't know what I would do without this site!!! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
