    Hi guys I have a question about a Dana 60, I have a friend that has a Dana 60 for sale, with 4:10 ratio, posi, it all sounds fine and it looks good, the question is do I have to do any modifications on my truck to install this one, would it go with the same drive shaft or do I need a longer or shorter one, and what other modification would I need? as you can see I dont know much about fixing trucks, I do know that I need to have the same ratio up in the front as the back any help would be fine, one more thing is $350 a good price for the Dana 60 thanks guys.

    im not sure but the spring pearches might need to be moved might want to measure that driveline will be fine but may need a new u-joint i would just find a 14ff out of a 3/4 ton chevy truck then it will bolt right in and you will not have the c-clips holding the axles in[​IMG] the only thing you would need for the 14ff is a new u-joint no biggy and you should be able to find one in your area for under $350 and the detroit full locker is only 320 at 4wpw
