    I recently swapped the axles on my 79 k5 to Dana 60 front and rear. The front axle is a Chevy D60 with 35 spline axles, while the rear is a Dodge D60 with 30 spline axles. Is my truck a one ton or 3/4 ton?
    thanx

    true, so just take the average. (1 + 3/4)/2=7/8ths. so you were right all along. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
