    I'm using a 1500 lb one from Northern Tool. My light duty one that I started with sure bounced A LOT!

    Awesome build! I just found this!

    I've got an '04 8.1/Allison 2wd sitting in my backyard. Bought it to swap in my GMT 400 k3500 CCLB SRW, but now I'm not sure what in the world I'm going to do it with it... LOL

    Here's a terrible picture of the GMT800 spindles before cleaning and prep.

    I have a set of K2XX knuckles that are nearly new, and I am hard pressed to see what the difference is. If they would work for the brake upgrade, by extension, would the K2XX aluminum knuckles work as well?

    I test fit the 2218RL tie rod in the knuckle today. Looks like a success, no movement. Taper locked in. But I made another discovery by accident... IMG_20210320_123118984.jpg

    It fits the K2XX knuckle, which is completely unmodified! IMG_20210320_123812524.jpg

    Late 80's-mid 90's vans.
    Edited. Does NOT fit square body trucks.
