not even close. the 8 3/4 was last used in 79ish and NEVER EVER in the 2nd gen trucks. please get your facts right befor posting in the tech section. the axles in a 2nd gen 1500 are front dana 44 and rear chrysler 9.25. the 9.25 has been in the ram line since the mid 70s. again do your research befor posting.

yes 2nd gen 3/4 and 1tons have a 3" wide spring
