I have the original PW arm and drag link that I had been using with the Ramcharger (1978?) box and factory front axle, but since the Dana has a hole instead of a pivot ball, I didn't know if there was any way to make the Dana work with the stock drag link and arm. I know VPW sells pivot balls that fit the original drag link, but think they're weld-in(?), not bolted. The only setup I've seen detailed pictures of used a homemade drag link made from rod ends and a coupler/threaded sleeve, with swedge-type conical washers and long bolts to hold it all together. While I'm sure it worked and was safe, the long bolts and swedge-type washers made me a little leery or trying to replicate it. Any little bit of info helps a lot, guys- thanks, and if anyone thinks of anything else, please pass it on.
