    I bought a one ton truck with a 60 and a 14bff, switching it with a 12 and 10. Got the 60 under the truck(minus steering and drive shaft), moving the spring perches now. Never thought about how much of a pain it would be. Anybody got any pointers or sympathy? /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    Quit your whining. I did them both last weekend. Me and my GIRLFRIEND put my '60 in ourselves. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Best pointer I've got is to buy loaded calipers for the front. The hardware is expensive but it comes with loaded calipers.

    Sure, moral support. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
