    I found an ad with a set of one ton axles for sale, so I call and he says it is not a Dana 60, but is not a Dana44. He said it is bigger than a d44 but not as big as a d60 and has a 12 bolt cover. I did some research and found that even d60's only have 10 bolts on the cover. So what is this thing?

    Is the dude sure its a Chevy axle? About the only other 1-ton I can think of that MIGHT have 12 bolts would be the Ford (Sterling) 10.25 inch. Its full floating, 8 lug, etc. I just don't know how many bolts it has...maybe thats it. Or maybe that guy doesn't know what the hell he's talking about.

    Doesn't sound like a one ton to me.
    12 bolt= heavy half, 3/4 ton

    If you are talking about front axles, the only ones ever used since the late 60's that I know of are either the Dana 44 (1/2 and 3/4 ton up to around '77), GM Corp. 10-bolt (1/2 and 3/4 ton from '77 on), and the Dana 60 (1 ton only, '77 on).

    The only GM offered axle with 12-bolts on the cover was the 12-bolt, which was only offered as a rear axle in 1/2 tons. BTW, I've never heard of a 12-bolt being used in a 3/4 ton.....they had either the full-floating or semi-floating 14-bolts.

    I went to see them today. They were 3/4 ton axles. A 10 bolt front and a 14 bolt sf rear. Anyway, I bought the 10 bolt for $125 and a set of smogable Thorleys for $125. The front axle is 8 lug, so I thought it was at least that. He also had a bunch of other stuff that I will list in parts for sale.
