Sell the caddy as a drop out and use the transmission that comes with the 3800. Always best to keep a package intact.

You could keep the cradle you've got now, just sell the driveline and mounts. Otherwise keep an eye on craigslist, ebay, etc.

I've actually got an '88 cradle with links and poly I'm considering selling, no knuckles or bolts, though. How close are you to Harrisburg?

Well, I've dug through my random part collection, and I've found that apparently my memory isn't infallible after all...

I found the radius rods (the long ones) have the bolts, washers, and nuts, and I found the long bolts for the bottom of the knuckles, with four of the curved bushing washers... But still no knuckles. The poly is already installed, and is the black colored ones.

It looks like shipping from Harrisburg to Pittsburgh on Greyhound will be in the ballpark of $65.

This is a southern cradle so no appreciable rust (practically none at all, really).

How about $250 shipped?
