I know thas not the answer you were looking for
What I find with a little search on line is that the names are generally innerchangable. I don't know all the chassis terms but I do know in the paint side there are names that are tossed around innerchanging "2K" for Urethane for example that drive me nuts. So if there is a CORRECT term for the "four bar" or "Four link" I want to know. I am wondering if they are not just regional terms??

Seems to me there is a kit out there that allows you to install a '69-'87 Chevy 2WD pickup power steering unit in the AD trucks. Try Speedway Motors or Summit Racing.

I've heard Art Morrison, but also heard their darn expensive. Other options?
Don't overlook the Welder Series for a MII crossmember, their quality and price is awesome.
