    Look for JoeyD, he's got a 98 2500 with a seriously built Dana 60 under a diesel engine.

    I know you need a 70s Ford Dana 60, or Dana44hd, and they sell bracket kits to mount the springs up. Bigbluechevy on thetruckstop.us just put one under his 2wd 3500, you can look him up over there. He took a lot of pics along the way.

    And since you asked nicely, I won't flame you for the Cummins and sfa swap.
