    i was reading four wheeler or petersons anyway. they had the axel guide and i noticed they had a pic of a front dana 60 with the chunk on the drivers side. do yall swap your transfer over or can you change the axel tubes around?

    thanks

    furd D60s have the pumpkin on the "wrong" side compared to dodge/chevy models. Its entirely possible to use a furd d60 in a chevy... you'd just need to get your t-case on the other side. Not sure to many other mods would be necessary. *shrug* I dunno for sure tho...

    A lot of guys with 88-up chevys use a Ford D60 because the tcase output is on the other side on those.
    You can use a Ford NP205 with a Ford D60 in your Chevy and it will work fine.
