Spintech 6222 they were $85 per.

I called them directly, they only had 2 that would fit with the long arm. This is the quieter of the 2......but like he said,yes it's quieter then the 9000 series but it's not gonna sound like a minivan.

Skids all done. Oil pan wasn't really an issue where it hangs, it sits about the same as the front shaft, still above the links.This evening gets loaded on his trailer waiting to head to Special T's. (Yes Roger, stop by there and see what ya think!)
