    Finally got my rig back on tires again. Now have the 14ff and dana 60 with new lift, shackle flip, and all new greaseable bushings, and ORD HD front shackles. Went together real well, and I finally have some room in garage again. She looks pathetic with the 31's on her right now, but she is sittin real good. Should have pics up tommorrow. Yea Sapper, I got the 60 under her by about 2100. Looks good.

    Dawson,
    I put in new 6 inch springs when I did it. It was pretty easy. Had the truck on stands, so the axle just rolled under her, within u-bolt range. OH, a big learning lesson, now on my 5 axle swap, put some little tires on the axle to wheel her around, I can't tell you how much easier than tryin to move a 600 pound axle on floor jacks, or other. Tires made it easy. Lots of luck and let me know if you need anything. Sapper and I are out here in Jacksonville.
