doesn't really matter what the problem is when it comes to the TTB.

How much work cost would it be to put in a solid axle? I think this would be the best.
Just one fix.

its a straight bolt in deal, not a lot of work at all.
the problem is finding one, they are getting harder and harder to find, especially at a reasonable price.

I agree, solid is the best fix. Other than that, start with a good alignment and replace anything that is worn. Sagging leafs will also hurt the TTB.

If you go with a D60..$100-1500 is the going cost, get a RS kit and V code SD springs. It will ride like a SD..sweet! I developed this mod and if you need help PM me.
