NorCal Nick.....help again.

We talked a few years back reguarding my 2003 Duramax with the Fabtech coilover conversion kit.

Well..................

A few years and a few thousand dollars later I am completley fed up with this IFS kit and will be doing a dana 60 swap. Cognito stabilizers on it and I still go through idler/pitman arms once a year. If I replace one hub a year its been a good year. The CV axles that fabtech supplied became grenades and I upgraded to the slip yoke style axles that RCV performance made and sheared the axle shaft the very first time I used the 4 wheel drive (in loose dirt no less). RCV discontinued those axles 4 months after I bought them.

What is better as far as axle is concerned 79-94 ford or one out of the early 2000's dodges?

Im going with a 4-link and will be trying to use the dirtlogic 4.0 coilovers that I already have.
