What's wrong with the axle, it can't be fixed?

Try Rocky Mountian Suspension for the lift springs. They always get good reviews here. There's a ling somewhere on the site. Watch the ads or go to the links section.

The diesels used Dana 60s. A Dana 44HD could support the weight, but not the pounding without a truss and it'll need constant replacement of balljoints.

Don't use the 44 if ball joint replacement will be needed constantly. I just changed mine and it wasn't that much fun!

yes i am fully aware of the fun that it is to change dana 44 ball joints my play truck started out as a 1/2 ton now 1 ton and ed i am not sure but do you think i am jumping the diesel???? im not i dont jump any of my trucks not that much fun for the damage it makes


but any way where would i get a dona 60 for the front ??? i think i could get on from the salvage yard but it would need to rebuilt and the cost would be close i think to a new one ???

you could get one from a junk yard and rebuild it for well under the cost of a new one. I would go looking for 1 ton dodge and chevy pickups in the junk yards. You can use a chevy front axle, the spring perches are about an inch different, but you can make it work with very little work.
