Re: 1969 C50 crew cab build

1ton down is setup for 2.75" wide stock leafs . aftermarket like lift kits go 2.5" you cant cut in the the housing for 3" wide unless you do a home brew u-bolt conversion as you will loose the 2 bolt holes for the spring plate .


the width for a dana 60 front is 32" center to center .
the 1ton rear for a 14ff is 40.5" center to center and 2.5" wide springs .

the rear can be worked around a bit but the front has the pass side spring mount cast in to the diff housing .

todays axles i would tend to start looking at ford f-450 and f-550 super duty stuff . there a lot bigger and bigger parts and also factory 19.5 rim size .

Re: 1969 C50 crew cab build

Thanks for the info. Iím looking at the K50 rtech build and he said he just put the 1 Tom axles in. I know there are bigger axles but Iím just wondering if itís as easy as sliding in the 1 ton axles and bolting them to the leaf springs.
