    D60 steering corection blocks and u-bolt sets for a D60 and a 1 ton 14FF (plates under the axle, not on top)? If so, how much for all three things? Thanks a bunch.

    See Ya,
    Keith

    We can get you a block, we might have a kit in stock, but don't like to admit it. I can't knock it too bad I guess, they do work for some guys, but we tend to cater to more serious off road vehicles and drivers and the steering blocks just don't work well for that. We do try to keep in mind that not everyone is out thrashing parts all the time though.

    We do have a ubolt kit for the front, it's $45, and does NOT include the upper plate. We don't carry a square ubolt kit for the 14 bolt, as in stock replacement 1-ton. We have replacement upper plates and new ubolts together for $63.00. Too many problems with the 1-ton ubolt arrangement, corrosion on the axle and the ubolts, ground clearance, etc.
    Thanks

    I'll be calling soon. I hear ya on the steering block, I just don't have the cash for the crossover yet and I want to get these axles under my truck soon. Since I have a 4" lift I figured that the steering block would get me close enough untill I can find some more cash. Thanks for responding.

    See Ya,
    Keith

    Oh ya, is the $63.00 for both plates and all four u-bolts. I would rather go that route in the rear. It's just all I had was the stockers from the truck. So this will work out just right. [​IMG]

    Yup, $63 does everything in the rear, all the ubolts and the plates.

    How much does the steering block kit go for? I just installed my 4" lift with my 60 and there is no way that the drag link is going to hold up at that angle. Thanks, Pete.

    The steering block kit isn't exactly a cheap fix, but it works OK, it's going to be $110.00. You might look into a dropped draglink too, they typically run about $150. We don't carry one, but that's about the right price.
