Dana 60 swap
My '97 F250 4X4 is bone stock. I use it as a hauler to get the kids out to the desert/river and occasional runs around town. Occasionally, the truck pulls about a 15,000 pound load.
I picked up a set of axles out of a 2000 Superduty because I wanted to get rid of the D50 (and it's crappy ride), they were cheap and I like the fact the rear brakes are disc. I was going to do the V/B spring swap, but have seen a few coil converions and am thinking about going that way. My thoughts were to grab some coil buckets off a 2wd in the bone yard and weld some link/coil mounts on the new axle, as I have seen on another post. I would go with Fox or King coilovers, but don't have that kind of money to put in shocks. I would like to keep the ride height and tire size as close to stock as possible.
I'd like to hear what you would do...
