    I bought a matching set of axles, a dana 60 and 14 bolt. Will the 14 bolt bolt right in or do I have to relocate the spring pads?

    If they came out of a 1 ton truck yes you will have to relocate them. Just curious but how much did they cost. I'm getting a 44 and a 14ff for mine.

    They cost me $1,500. Ouch!!! As you know when it comes to a blazer spare no expense. I looked for about 11 months before I found a set. Your right they came out of a 1 ton pickup.

    Most places get $1500 for just a Dana 60. So you probably got a decent deal.

    I dont mean to rub it in but I found a set of matching axles (dana 60 and 14 bolt) for 200 bucks. Some guy out here i guess doesnt know what he has.

    Actually my cousin bought them cuz I am short on cash right now. He hooked me up and also got another 14 bolt out of the deal for another 100 bucks. I am getting one 14 for sure but might let him keep the 60 and just convert my 10 bolt to 8 lug and maybe beef it a little bit. I am not sure just yet but I know I couldnt pass up that deal.
