    Did all 73-87 1 ton Chevys come with Dana 60's up front? Do they have 35 spline axles?
     
  2. They did'nt make a 1 ton 4x4 until 78 and ran through 91,all 1 ton 4x4's have d 60 fronts.Not sure on the spline count though.

    The answer is yes and no. The inner axle is a 35 spline however the outer was a 31 spline. The dana 60 is identifiable by a couple of ways. The easiest is by looking at right side u-bolt. If it has one u-bolt on the wheel side and 2 bolts directly into the casting, it's a pretty good sign. Dynatrac sells the up grade 35 spline outer stub.

    To further clarify, only one tons from 1977-1987, then 1988-1991 one ton CREWCABS (4 door) ONLY had the solid axle Dana 60 fronts.
