    clean truck i have a 1999 chevy k3500 crew cab with a 6" pro comp lift and 35" tires looks ok tired of breaking ball joints planning on a sas 1988 ford dana60 front axle just plan on changing outers to gm by the end of year i don't plan on going any bigger than 35-36" tires so thats why i chose a 1988 ford axle with the 36.5" centers i just don't know why the ball joints break so i don't trust the truck for driving any distance

    How do you manage to fit the 52" leaf springs there? Mine go back almost hitting the transmission cross member.

    They go from the front of the frame to there. Are you sure yours are 52"?
