Theres no real cost difference between a 4 link and a ladder bar build at this stage, its extremely trivial.I have been pricing to do my 69 charger and reached that conclusion some time ago.

if i were to 4 link it i think id rather lose the big dana 60 and go with a 9",... there is where the real cost difference- housing, center section, axles... just my preference i guess.

Main reason for staying with the ladder bars is because he already has them. Thus resulting in saving money on 4-link.

I dunno, I wouldn't swap out the 60 if It went 4 link, my plan is to build a 4 link with a dana 60.Same bracket but I could see the exspense of changing the brackets. Still should be huge money.
