    I can tell by looking at the raised portion of the diff cover around the fill plug.
    And the bolt holes instead of the u-bolt.
    And the inner C's. Kingpins....

    hopefully, i will be able to grind off those little brackets on the spring perches, and still have an ok surface for the leaf springs. Does any one have a good sugestion as to going and grinding those brackets off the spring perches? THanks.

    If you look on the bottom right corner of the housing there should be a "60F" cast into the webing.

    I'd start on the welds with a cutoff wheel and pry bar first. Then grind the welds clean. Wonder what kind of jerry rig they were used for? Maybe some brackets for 1.5" springs on an escort :rolleyes:
