I found a guy with a '79 dodge 1ton dually 4x4 for sale in my area and his ad says he will part it out so im thinking of buying the D60 front from him. I read a thread a while back talking about using a dodge 60 and if I remember right the spring pads on the the dodge axle were 1/2" wider than the GM axle so you would hafta space your springs 1/4" out on both sides. How would a guy go about doing this? Im thinking on the shackle end to just put a 1/4" think "washer" between the inside shackle and the spring but how do you space the front? Maybe remove the spring mount from the frame and put a 1/4" piece of steel between the frame and mount? Another thing I was wondering about was the steering, would any of the dodge steering work with the the GM setup? And how much should I expect to pay for this axle?
