    i have just finished my 14 Bolt and am in the market for a Dana 60 to put in the front of my '84 Blazer. i am looking for a SRW model. im not worried about what gears or hubs or anything that the axle has, it will all change. i am just interested in the axle, as long as it is in decent shape. but heres the kicker, my current 10 bolt rear has blown spiders in the gov-lock so its a little fun to drive, so i kind of need to stay within a few hours of the Fort Worth/Dallas area. any leads or anything would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance

    I don't really understand what your getting at. But if your looking for a dana 60 close to you, post up an ad in the for sale forum. Some members will even meet you half way so it's easier on you and driving.

    im really wanting 4.56s, since im only running 37s, but im pretty sure everything i am going to find is going to have 4.10s. but if i can find one with 4.56s, that would be great, then all i would have to do is some slight shimming and change out the carrier for a detroit. thanks for all of the replies
