ifs to 60 swap

got my kingpin dana 60. im not positive on the year althought i do know its around 86. got the kingpin rebuild kit, wheel bearings and seals, calipers, pads, and the rotors are getting turned. my rsk will be here next week. i found some superduty springs with 1.5'' lift for like $350. i wanan get those but im curious as to how i mount the rsk bracket? also where can i find a good used track bar and bracket? already checked ebay and junkyards. i was wonderin if the tuff country 4 inch drop would work

The drop bracket I have just uses the factory track bar drop bracket, the best place to find the track bar and bracket would be on ebay. Also you will most likely need a drop bracket with the lift.

To install a d60 with SD springs you use a RS kit. With 1.5" SD lift springs you getting close to needing a crossover steering kit and a new longer adj track bar and mounts or you will have bump steer issues. We developed the RS kit SD spring swap and have everything needed and instal help. If we can help please PM.
