Re: A rough K30...

I wished I could find a deal like that around here. it even has crossover steering some of the heavest front springs I ever seen under a k30 that front axle is out of something else looks heaver than a dana 60?

IMO, that's a steal for $3500. Also, with the tow bar I could tow it behind my Yugo to save gas!

Re: A rough K30...

now you say that the axle is not gm stock .

and i looked closer it has custom 4x4 spring hangers on the front . also why its got crossover steering . cheeper to do that than swap 4x4 stuff in .

if i had to guess this was a 2wd converted . and the rear leaf spring hangers on the front are 2wd short style .

looks like a custom made dana 70 or possible dana 80 but still using dana 60 outer hub.rotors most likely .

would be interesting to get my hands on it and check it over .

That's a converted 2wd. Dana 70 front. Look at rear spring front hangers, they are really short.....

Re: A rough K30...

That's quite a machine. Hey man, those aren't factory tow hooks. You know it's been off road. I would think well maintained. Here it is, we wouldn't want it to do a photobucket
