slow600 my 2 cents: i would use a superduty d60 and run radius arms up front. much easier and no need to calculate link lengths etc. these axles are way beefier than any other factory 1 ton axle and can be had in 373 or 410 flavors. they can also be found for under 1200 a front/rear set online.

whether you choose bags or coils, would be on your own for shock tower/upper bag mounts. lots of places (ruffstuff, barnes) make lower the mount that bolt onto the sd60 axles.

jr90 Any suggestions on bags and bagand shock mounts and if they'll fit, or would coils or coilovers be better?

u2slow The Ford guys have a short tube on the one side to deal with too. This looks to have potential:
Artec Industries 60 Lower Link Axle Brackets

Unless I do a stock leaf-sprung conversion on my '75 D300 crew, I'll be going to a wider diff.

Crew cab 4wd conversion question

I'm going to cummins, nv5600 and 4wd swap my 84 crew and am thinking I'd like to go with 3 link and air in the front to start and do the rear later. The only one I've seen is ww1g, is there room to do it without widening the axles? Any insight or tips would be appreciated.
