    Does changing from a 10 bolt to a Dana 60 increase your lifted height in the front? Are the spring perches higher on a Dana 60 or are they the same. My K5 sits higher in the rear right now and I’m just wondering when I install a Dana 60 in the front if it will increase the ride height a bit. I don’t want to waste money on 1" zero rates if I don’t have to.

    I believe the D60 will raise the front up 1/2 to 3/4" if I remember right.

    Swapping in the Dana 60 will lift the front about 3/4 inch.

    Yep, i'll second that the D60 will give about 3/4" lift, at least it did in my blazer.

    Going from a 10 bolt to the Dana 60. Will raise the frontend 1" . It's the same with the 3/4 ton Dana 44 front axle.
