    Hello All,

    I've got stock axles on a '79 and would like to upgrade. What should I expect to pay for a Dana 60 for the front and a 14 FF for the rear?

    What is the best way to find these? Do I ask the parts yard specifically for a D60 and 14FF? Does year matter?

    What's the best way to keep from getting ripped off?

    Also, any idea how much a dynatrac axle costs?

    Thanks mucho,

    79Guy

    It depends where you are. Here prices start from 100 dollars for a dana60 or a 14 bolt. I'm not sure where you are but you should be able to find a good one for about 400 or even less. I don't think the year matters as long as its from a non dually 73-87 chevrolet or gmc truck. You can ask the guy at the junkyard if he has any or you can look for 1 ton chevy parts trucks for sale buy a private seller. Make sure you check everything on the axles. Check what the tag says for the gear ratio but always take the cover off and count the teeth. Make sure that none of the teethe are missing or damaged. Also make sure that the axle is staright and wasn't abused too much. I don't know too much about axles so don't rely too much on my answers.

    $100-400...well to say the least this is for one trashed. (maybe not) but its quite expensive to get one rebuilt, and pay for one....i am not expert...but i don't think its possible to find a really nice useable axle for 100-400 thats a d60 or a 14bolt...to sayt he least its a pipe dream...

    I paid 4000$ for mine rebuilt and stuffed with 5.13's and detroits front and rear. I priced them from Boyce Equiptmen and they came out to about 5000$ shipped to my front door.

    5000$?! That was for the dana 60 front and the corp 14 bolt right? I saw a rebuilt 2 1/2 axle for 1500$ and rebuitl 1 ton axle with 4:56s for 1000$. I've seen axles in pretty good condition at the junkyard for 600 canadain(400 u.s.)

    You get what you pay for, I have seen many people buy the cheap axel, rebuild it, try to find parts, scrounge through junkyards and end up with an axel they are always working on. I have a warranty and i have someone who has many years of experience to stand behind what I use. I am building my truck im an efort to not have to "RE" upgrade my upgrades and not to ne the guy who always brakes on the trail. Build it once and build it right.

    Look for a Mid 80's single rear wheel K30 axles. I would not buy a set unless they were still bolted to the original truck and I got to remove them with all the extras. I come across about 3-4 sets (D60/14 bolt) a year for around 1200-1500 . I know I will probably want different gears and lockers but I still come out under 2500 for the set ready to go like I want.

    I reciently bought a new front D60 from 4xheaven back in March for 1350.00 plus 350.00 S&H out to Calif. I bought a 14 bolt FF from a junk yard for 125.00 . By the time I bought 4.56"s , locker, new bearings and seals , wheel cylinders , break shoes , It"s cost me just under a 1000.00 bucks, and thats doing the complete rebuild myself. I needed the asurrance of having all new parts. I hate trail repairs.
