    Umm, lets see. Dana 60 use the same banjo bolts as 10 bolts, You will get about 3/4 of an inch lift from the axle alone. You should probably put new kingpin bushings and springs in. Don't know what condition yours in, but that one is a must. U-bolts, springs plates and studs and you should be good to go. Also will need some steering correction. Good luck. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I was just about to make a post about that. I thought my front end looked a bit higher after I put my 60 in yesterday, but I thought maybe it was my imagination. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
