    What axle came in the rear of a 72' 3/4 ton pickup? Found one on ebay & was wondering if it would be a dana 60. It is a fullfloater from the pics but the owner does not know the axle type or spline count. Thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    It could be a 60 or an Eaton ho52. The Eatons have a removeable third member and an enormous round pumpkin.

    It doesn't look like an eaton at all. No removable 3rd member. I would say its a 60.

    The 30 spline shafts are about as strong as a 10 bolt or 12 bolt.

    On an Eaton? Eatons are millions of times stronger than 10/12 bolts.

    the eaten is very similar to a 14 bolt in many ways, you can also drop in a 14 bolt carrer and shafts,



    being so.....I imagin it is alot stronger than a 10/12 bolt

    The picture in the E-bay ad is of a Dana 60 out of a '72 Chevy. No 14 bolts until '73. And it does have 30 spline shafts about as strong as a 10 ro 12 bolt.

    That is very misleading since the Dana 60 axle is a Full floater and the axleshafts never see most of the load a semi-floating 10/12 bolt do. The bearing hubs and axle housing take most of the vehicle weight off of the axleshaft on the D60 FF.

    It's not the weight where the problem is. They twist off.
