Just curious as to what everyone who had converted a truck Dana over to use in a car are using as a traction device, and how far they went to convert it over,such as turning the axle tubes down or welding on a snubber mount etc. I am looking at either converting a truck dana or buying the strange/moser 60 because I cant find a car dana without traveling halfway across the U.S. and have decided since i want to modify it, it may be a better idea to do something other than a factory original anyway

I am using a truck Dana in my 68 cuda project and plan on leaving the tubes
as they are and opening up the brackets for the 4-link.
I would think if you are stepping up to a dana you would want to go with
a 4-link or a ladder bar?
I will be working on the rear tonight, fitting the brackets and mocking the
housing up, I have a guy coming over Saturday who will be doing the actual
final cutting and welding on the housing. He has a jig made and he can keep
everything square plus he is a real welder not a monkey with a wire welder
like me. Also you may want to check out my thread from a few days back
HELP ME SET UP MY DANA, AA outlaw gave me some good advice.
I will post some pictures monday and let you see how it is going.
good luck

I would really rather stay with stock style springs instead of a 4 link or ladder bar set up, just curious as to how other people had done this, on another board I was told you could weld snubber mounts to the case and set it up like a car dana, this is what I was thinking about trying.
