Okay I am about to buy a Dana 60 for what I consider a steal at $620 with the gears that I want (4.56) It is out of a Chevy pickup and will be going under my 86 Jimmy. Now I was wondering are the Chevy axles desireable or not? I'm pretty sure they are open-knuckled but what spline count did chevy use over the years and is there any years that I will not want to purchase? Basically am I potentially buying a lemon axle or should it be a good deal? I'm not sure what year Chevy all Im sure is that it is a Chevy 1 ton truck.
