that 1500 should have the corp 8.75 that is supposed to be as strong as the 60 I wouldn't worry about that.
got my numbers mixed up my bad.... the rest of my statement still stands...not even close. the 8 3/4 were in the befor the 80s 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
the guys on ramz were talking about it the other day.so you belive a 9.25 is as strong as a 60? where did you do you get your info from?
