    It will fit but you'll have to move spring pads and shock mounts.

    This is the old cast perch sitting on the new one. You can see the shiny spot to the right of the new one...Thats where the stock one used to be- Thats Mikes finger by the way..:P

    On a van 14b the tubes are long enough that you could leave the old perches on there if ya wanted. It'd just look kinda funny. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif
