Thats a good price not only for brakets, but for safty.

What I'm also trying to do is get details too. The more details a build thread has on what you used and what you did the better it is.

There are some vedors here that sell the stuff to, might check thatm out and price stuff out. Thers no price for safty, if you know what I mean.

From the looks of it the dodge is getting its ass kicked by your truck.

Im a fan of the D30, I think they are great axles for their size....

However, If I were you, Id start looking around for a HP D30 to replace that low pinion one. You are almost certain to rip some teeth off that ring and pinion...


EDIT: very well could be just the angle of the picture making it look like a low pinion...

as far as shocks and springs, it's not set in stone yet but im planning on runnin some coils from bronco graveyard. I need to call them to see if there facts are right. but a coil for a 78-79 f150 is rated at 300 ppi and has a free height of 25''. so well in turn be around 20'' at ride height if my math is right. where as the coils for a EB are rated at 415 ppi and will most likely be too stiff

once i find out how much travel i will have i will be onto the shock game
planin on runnin some nitrogen shocks, not exactly sure which brand but i like the idea of being able to adjust them to what i like/use it for

I just ordered my springs from the graveyard!!! after speaking with one of the staff i found that all there "superflex" coil's are rated at 300ppi (hope there not too stiff)
the only difference is height. and the f150's (that i ordered) are 25'' free height, where as the EB's are 23.5'' free

oh yeah, That was another 210$ w/shipping

I have the same brackets from Ballistic and the shipping was great. I live in northeast Indiana and they were to my door in 2 days with UPS ground.

These brackets are great. I welded them to a piece or 4" angle so I wouldn't have to weld the brackets directly to the frame. Then drilled holes in the angle iron.
