    If it's a 35 spline, it will be.

    Probably not, most rear dana 60's are full floating, which means that they are 30 spline with much smaller shafts. Front dana 60's are 35 spline.

    Wether or not the axle is full floating has nothing to do with how many splines the shafts have. There are 35 spline dana 60 rears out there but they are pretty rare.

    To the original poster. Chances are the locker will be 30 spline and will not work as is. You might be able to replace the side gears with 35 spline gears but I am not sure if that is cost effective or possible but might be worth lookin into.

    If its 35 spline it should work (assuming it is the right carrier break).

    when I bought the d60 ARB air locker, there were 2 available on the webpage. RD35 and RD42.

    RD35 is 35 spline chevy, dodge, ford apps, FF front
    RD42 is 35 spline for ford rears, FF

    IIRC, that is the breakdown.

    So, I think there is a difference in the carrier itself.

    Pretty sure the intall kits are the same though.
