    Hi Everyone,
    I have located 3 sets of D60 axles,:bow: these are both front and rear.
    My question to all you guys with D60 axles, what do I have to watch out for when buying these items,:thinking: I know they are the stronger axles compared to the D44 and the 10 bolt and they are from the military, so some advice from you folks would be helpful.:1zhelp: :1zhelp:
    Mike

    I guess I'll be the one to state the obvious.Make sure it is a 60, not a 61,as they look almost excactly the same.It's for a GM and finally,it's nice if it's complete....

    make sure it comes with the plates and U bolts as they are often over looked.

    If you have a choice, choose one that is not leaking oil from the ends of the axle tubes. This is a bad sign you will be buying new axle shafts and seals.
