Exactly what tab said. i would recommend a 3/4" bore witha 7/8" shank

buy these.

I think he even offers a greatlakes4x4 discount.

EDIT- this is assuming you are building a tube rig under 4500 lbs and under 450 hp. If this is a 600hp rig on rockwells, you'll need bigger. I just saw you are from TN, and there are some big rock rods down there.
