    I´ve checked on summit and I´ve tried search here..

    Tie-rod ends, are the the same for 10bolt vs. dana 60??? (it looked like the same part number too me..)

    Attachment to the springs, I know you use u-bolts on three places, but the fourth? Do you use a regular bolt? If so, what size and thread?

    Thanx, Sebastian

    do you have a d60 front or are you doing some searching?


    I know my tierod ends were different size between my d44 and my d60... physically the d60 tierod was bigger... IT WAS HUGE :haha:

    also yes drivers side (gm d60) has 2 ubolts as the passenger side has 1 ubolt and 2 studs that are in the axle. You use 2 nuts to bolt the leafpack down...
    however some loose or break the stud and use grade 8 bolts. I have the studs...:bow:

    I got the axle yesturday.. (and I have brand new parts for a complete 10bolt still in the boxes but I don't want to tear it down unless I have new parts waiting)
    Ok, the studs in my axle were gone so I guess i'll just get some bolts.. :)

    thanx!!

    the tapered part of the tie-rod ends are the same, but the threaded portion on the d60 tierod ends is larger.
