    Depends on what type of 60 it is (Dodge, Chevy, Ford). The Chevy and Ford axles should take a 4 prong socket and a Dodge takes a large hex socket (dont know the size).

    I don't know about the Dodge or Chevy, but the Ford '78 and '79 use the six point socket. I always thought they all did but I only have experience with the one I mentioned .

    It could be either. Mine has six notches. Just pull out the hubs and count the slots on your spindle nuts. I bought the wrong one first of course /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif
