No, really it does not. Beefy(er) yes but not still 1 ton. 1 ton steering is a misnomer. And beefier does not necessarily mean better. Most all the TRE`s and DL parts called 1 ton are from 1/2 and 3/4 ton GM vehicles. Feature 7/8 x 18 threads.

ES2026R Chevy Suburban/Blazer
ES2233L Chevy Suburban/Blazer

Not till you get into 1 inch shanks that the ends become 1 ton. Not many folks build this and it is going to be tough to incorporate that into a Dana30 axle.


Waiting for pictures or at least a description of the steering.

Well I picked the axles up this weekend and I would say the steering on it is at least twice as thick as my stock setup. I got home to late tonight for pictures. but I will get some tomorrow after I get the axles cleaned up.
