    Can someone tell me the measurement on a 88-90 Dodge front Dana 60 center of spring perch to center of spring perch? Also does this axle have the 1480 u-joint?

    Don't know the measurement, but it WON'T have a 1480 joint. Also, make sure itsa king pin style and not a ball joint style front 60, the king pins are much better!!

    What joint are you talking about? The yoke for the driveshaft u-joint has always been a 1310 series on GM 60s (1977-1991). The outer axleshaft u-joints I don't believe are called "1480" or 1350", etc., but rather like 5-297x (which is for a Dana 44 or 10 bolt front, I forget what the # is for Dana 60s).

    I was referring to the steering u-joint series on the front Dana 60 on 77-91 GM's. I was thinking it was a 1480 series. I stand corrected and thanks for the info. I'd be really happy if someone could tell would steering u-joint series would be in the front Dana 60 from a 88-92 Dodge. truck.
