    Will swapping axles (Dana 60 35 spline front, Dana 60 30 spline rear) in place of my stock axles(10 bolt front, 12 bolt rear) on my 79 K5, slow down my car on take offs?
    Thanx

    <font color="green"> It's going to depend heavily on the gearing more than anything else. The added weight of the D60s might slow it down but it will be barely noticable, the gearing is the big thing. </font color>
