    Either it will or it won’t. Something else might break. We don’t know anything at all about that. Nats are fun either way! :beep:

    Looking good. Built a new Dana 60 for my Challenger over the winter. Narrowed it, moved springs inboard, lightweight spool, 40 spline gun drilled axles. Still staying leaf spring. Caltracs and split mono leafs.

    Finally buttoned up my Gearvendors OD to my new-to-me 18-spline. Looks the goods, now just waiting for valve springs so we can bolt it all together and get it back in.

    That thing is long. Did you have to put another carrier in under the car. Or dose it just hang off the transmission?

    I had to spring for an automatic crossmember (got one from Brewers), slightly different to the manual one in 68. The OD is made to bolt to it without hassle. As for driveshaft, blowing my diff at the track made me reconsider how smart it might actually be to stick a Dana 60 in there, so now thats happening. Once its in - next week hopefully - I can get the car back on its ass and measure the shaft and correct angle etc.
    Gearvendors OD definitely not cheap, but definitely impressed with their product, and service. Upon inspecting all the parts, I found I had a coupler missing. I rang the mdirect, and they shipped me another without charge, even though I was more than happy to pay for one. Thats what I call service. Highly recommended.
