it is a good axle, you'd have to weld all the brackets on for your coil suspension though, not a typical diy job. 8.8 and d44 are comparable axles.
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
