Sorry if it sounded like I want to copy the manufacturers. I have a good idea in the direction I need to go in order to make my 4x4 setup work, I just wanted to compare my thoughts. Im very conifident on the parts I need (4l80e with manual T case, dana 60 from 80s to early 90s Ford, custom drive shaft, sway bar and link, etc) but there are 2 ways in making this work. One way, I make hangers and use leaf springs along with some other mods, converting it this way I would need to remove the factory coil spring mounts that are part of the engine crossmember or opption 2 is to use the the factory coil spring mounts and turn the front end into a 5 link setup, but going this route will a need a dana 60 from a late 70s ford(because the diff is closer to the center of the truck and has more room between the diff and spindle).? These are the issues I started running into while piecing together my 4x4 convertion, and wanted help from this site.
Agian sorry, I did not intend to break any rules on thie site. This is a great site with a lot of great info. And sorry for any mis spelled words, Spelling is not one of my stong points.
