    Getting ready to order ring/pinion, locker, seals bearings, etc. for my front 60. Haven't cracked it open yet but, will a stock 79 K30 front have the good inner shafts or the neck downs? Need to know if I should order new inners also.

    I think the non-neck down started sometime in the eighties.

    Great. Guess I'll use the $ I was gonna spend on 35 spline outers and hubs for new inners instead. Where is the best place to one stop shop for all my D60 needs?

    I'd spend the money on the 35 spline outers instead. I'd bet they're much weaker than the neck down inners.

    I have torn into two 1979 Cab Chassis K-30's and they had the fat inners. All things with these trucks suggested that they were the original axles. You may want to check them out to be sure.
    Good luck , Tom
