Not sure I am going to eye ball it when i slide it under the truck and weld the perches on. So pretty much the D60 is done, I really cant do much with it until i see it under the truck and make sure i like it.

Wow... I brain farted big time... I was thinking you had a d60 front haha... WOW!!! I knew you had a D60 rear and D44 front, but holy ****... How hard is it gonna be to do the d60 rear? I'm torn between 9in and d60 when I do mine.

What size coils are you runnin? Just wondering, but I'll be running the 6in LT Allpro leafs front and 4in ALLPRO leafs in the rear..

I'm only running 5.5" coils that is what i have in the front now. i am reusing those.

D60 is gonna be a piece of cake. I love full floaters.

Zack does your 60 have a tone ring? and do you know if it will work with the ranger ABS. I was just thinking about all that, and i still have to figure out what I'm doing for speedo
