___________________
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.

It's a Ford Dana 60 front axle, with Quigley trailing arms. Newer Chevy Quigleys are all IFS. The was some overlap where both was available. I seem to think at one point the Chevy Quigleys had leaf springs, but I'm not 100% sure it was a actually a Quigley I was looking at.

on-edit. I found some info that in '99 Quigley used 56" double tapered leaf springs for the Chevy vans. I do not know when Quigley went from leaf to coils on the Chevy vans. A call to Quigley can probably find you the transition point.

Quigley IFS first appeared in 2002. I Just bought one.

Re: Quigley Chevy conversion

Quigley's first generation IFS system (2002 only) used parts from a 1998 K2500 or K3500 truck depending on van. Or atleast thats what the ball joints are. Got to figure that out over the weekend as I had the lower ball joints replaced.
