Hey could you get me the center to center measurement on your coil mounts just picked up 2 Dana 44s getting ready to start stripping them down in the next month or so but my truck is my daily driver so I would like to get the front diff all welded n prepped before ripping the other one apart lol would be greatly appreciated

Mine are mounted directly above the spring perches which puts them at 36.5" from center to center.

Ordered up a set of spare rear shafts for the truck. Go figure someone on pirate has a random set of 32 spline D60 shafts for an E350

Cleaned up the pair of balding TSL's





The one on the left still has a little bit to go. They both still have 1/4-3/8" left of tread so hopefully they last me a season.

It is quite thick when I go to hydro assist I should be able to mount off of it.

It will be I have to cut the fenders and some crap in the front before I can really flex it out. The front is bumpstopped to 5" of uptravel so it wont have much up but ton's of down.

Pretty much done. Needs the E350 master cylinder installed (will do at home), longer pitman arm (will do at home), front gears/locker, brakes pads/rotors and the compressor wired up.
