    Hi,

    I have found two Dana 60 off a Dodge truck. The front is a wide 35 spline heavy mother, and the rear is a regular Dana 60. I had to weld new spring and shock mounts to both of them. the rear is not so tough to install, but i got stuck with the steering part on the front one. Is there a known solution for that? or I just have to start some cutting and fitting? I will really appreciate all kind of help. Thanks

    Hi,

    Since the axle I'm installing is not a chevy, some mods need to be done. I would like to know if should fabricate stuff to make it work, or if there is an aftermarket kit for that?
