I've heard that once the drive 4x4 drive train is in, the rear drive shaft is a couple inches long with a manual trains. Is this a 90" wheelbase van?

How Much for the set ??? ( turbo 400 & the Np 205 ) ???? if you can get the right price on them I would Go for it !!!!!! Thats about right on the top U-Bolt Plates !!!!! See if he's got the Back U-Bolt Plates as well ... and on the Back Plates .... They have to be of a 4x4 .. the one's on a 2wd... Look the same when your Pulling them off ... But the u-bolts wont go thru Them ... Crying or Very sad I Know this cause ... well you can say I've been there and done that !!!!! On the front Plates you don't need the Blazer or truck sway Bar ... that go's across them ... they actually screw into them !!!!!!! and these are different ... there's a Left and a right ...... So make sure you look at them ... if the sway bar is still on them .... you have a set !!!!!! Then you can Start on your Shock Towers !!!!!!! Just had a pair Made up for my Chevy !!!!!!!! ( THE TREE VAN ) ...............

I am Real Happy with these Mounts .... My Best design so far .......
