    are all 12 bolt frontends D60? My neighbor once told me that his chevy truck had a 12 bolt frontend (this guy can also be a bit of a pathological lier)... I'm pretty sure he would sell it to me, or even the whole truck (no motor), for cheap.. If it is a D60, what all would I need to unbolt? how hard would it be to make it work with my STOCK steering on my K20?
    if this isn't really a D60 on his truck, what are some good donor trucks to look for? I suppose the spring perches have to be relocated??


    sorry for the common post, but I didn't even bother shearching Dana 60 because those words have probably been used in every post ever made. :(

    There is no "12 bolt front end"... period.

    D44's, D60's and (of course) corp 10 bolts all have 10 bolts on the covers.

    Dana 44's, Dana 60's and 10-bolts all have exactly 10 bolts holding the cover on. ;)

    12 bolts were REAR diffs only! :D

    EDIT: John types faster than I! :doah: :doah: :haha:

    hey 78 sub where in GA are you?

    you will only find a D60 in chevy and GM K30's the GM's might be called k35's

    1991 was the last year for the D60 in a gm truck.

    just to throw my 2 cents worth in the ring... had a guy tell me that the truck i was buying had 1 ton dana 60's under it... but when i questioned him and told him it appeared to me it had 14ff and 10b 8 lug he said yes.. some people do not know/lie about what they have. i was amused none the less.
