    Yesterday I broke down and ordered 2" lift EZ-Ride springs, a 4" shackle flip, and a U-bolt kit. I also managed to find a 14BFF in Denver in good condtion with the gears i needed so I went and pick that up too /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif that stuff with my 465/205 combo that will be installed on Tuesday and my 10B 8-lug conversion will make me an officail member of the 3/4-ton club....Now I only need a Dana 60 /forums/images/icons/blush.gif Later

    Sweet man. Glad to hear you are almost done for now. I am taking baby steps. Me and my buddy got my 14bff loaded the other day so I can have the gears installed and the bearings redone. Also my spring plates and ubolts showed up from ORD the other day. 3/4 ton is on its way./forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    I wish I had $$$ to burn....I just got done installing the rear lift on my rig and I was scared to dealth at how it looked...The stock 10B with stock springs and 6" blocks /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif So I said "f*** it...i need to be able to drive this thing when I get the tranny in" So I ordered the shackle flip, springs and u-bolt kit...Then I got to looking at the spring pads on my 10B and was questioning their integrity, so I called basically every bone yard in Denver and found the 14bff I needed and with in a period of 4 hours I decided to get the 14bff with in the next few weeks, then that was moved to days then hours and I bugged my rommie to take me down there and pick it up with me...So yeah...you can say my rear end got a major upgrade in oine day /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Hopefully by mid next week I will have the 465/205 in, the shackle flip and springs and the 14bff...I am also taking the plunge and going to disc brakes on the rear so I will have to start getting the parts together for that...

    Chris...
