    Where can I buy the Plates to bolt in a dana 60 in my blazer. Have the Front end but no u-bolts or plates with sway bar connections. Didn't warn make a kit that you could buy to swap a dana 60 in place of the stock front end. Any help would be great Thank's

    You can get these GM pieces at any GM dealer. Boyce Equipment also sells these items. Any salvage yard should have some (providing they HAD a K30 truck to begin with).

    I think you can use them even if they are from a dually too so that widens the choices. thatK30guy and others will know for sure.

    Yep, Bad Dog is right on the money. Ask salvage yards for either the dually or the single rear wheel plates. Both are the exact same part no.s.

    Just to knock on Boyce a little, I called them and asked them how much for a 1350 yoke for a Dana 60, and they said something like $140 or $114, can't remember, for a "Brand New" yoke. I laughed and said thanks. Then I called Parts Mike and asked for the same thing, and he said $50 for a "Brand New" Dana Spicer yoke and Ubolts to fit it. Boyce is a rip off. But I think last time I checked them for D60 spring plates, I could've sworn it was something like $150 for the pair...still, wayyy toooo much.

    Yeah, Ken, it was like $169 for the pair of new ones. I got my D60 with the spring plates and sway bar so didn't need them, but told Boyce "man, you guys are sure proud of your stuff." Guy said it was "market value"....................haha.

    If you don't need the pervision for a stabilizer bar (ala cross-over) Scott at Rockstomper.com can make you a set for next to nothing, He got the measurements from mine the other day.
