    common occurance. the fix is to find a Dana 60 axle out of a 86-96 F350, and do the straight axle swap.

    Do a search I just did the swap to one of my trucks. Best thing you can do. YOU wont regret it. If you want more picks of the swap. pm me your email and i will send them to you. I have about 10pics it is a pretty easy swap
