    Dana 60\'s

    Would a 1980 model 1 ton have the 60 front?

    Keep it simple!

    to make sure nobody swaped it out you can id it by looking at the pass. side of the axle. it should only have one u-bolt. also on the driver side of the diff it might be marked with a 60. hope this helps

    every K-30 1 ton, unless swaped out, had a 60 front from 77-91. All chevy 60's I have seen so far are marked 60F on the differential webbing before the axle tube on the right side of the diff as you are facing the truck head on.

    IT'S A 1 TON THING.... IF I HAVE TO EXPLAIN IT, YOU WOULDN'T UNDERSTAND!!!

    All 1 ton straight axle trucks have D60s. They never made a K30 without one.

    I just wanted to clear that up. One day someone on here had asked what a '76 K30 would have under it. The truth is, nothing, because K30s first came out in '77. The last of them was cranked out in the 1991 model year.
