    i need to do my front end. Is it cheaper to go crossover now with the d44 and change it later when i get a 60 or do a standard rebuild now and wait to do crossover when i get the 60?

    I think cross over for a 44/10b is more expensive then a d60.
    every chev 60 can acept a passenger side arm whereas the 10b/44 require specific knuckles and machining to accept a passenger side arm.

    you may be able to recoup your investment if you already have the correct knuckles as many people are looking for the crossover parts and most would rather just bolt em on rather then going through the effort to get stuff machined
