    I need to know before I order my new lines. I am putting a Dana 60 in the front to replace the 10 bolt. I am getting lines for a 12 inch lift. Does the 60 use the same lines as the 10 bolt? I know the Dana 44 is not the same as a 10 bolt but the guy said the 60 is not the same either but I was always told that a 60 uses the same brake line as a 10 bolt.

    Wayne,
    I'm pretty sure they use the exact same brake hose fittings. Almost 100% (D60 and 10 bolt).
    My suggestion to you to be 100% sure is to go to your local auto store and buy a stock 10bolt rubber brakehose and test fit it on the D60 caliper. If it fits, it's a go...if not, let me know and I may be able to help...I'm sure it will fit though. Oh, and then return the hose.

    All the axles use the same caliper mounting (AFAIK). The D44 axles stock calipers use a different size thread for the banjo fitting on the caliper than a 10Bolt. I would figure that as long as you used the stock calipers it you could use the same application brake lines.

    The D60 and 10B both share the same banjo bolts. Both are the same fittings on the caliper end.

    The D44 uses a bigger banjo and bolt. Will not work whatsoever.
