    I only show a 3.33 and 3.54 as the closest match. Did GM make its own gearset?

    Oh yeah... confirmed on the 3.73 D60 gearset /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Must've been 3.54's. My memory is kind of hazy...knew it was higher than 3.73. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Mine had those. It came out of an '84 diesel.

    Yep, I have a complete D60 3.73 set (including the open carrier) in excellent shape. Just pulled them out and stuffed in the 4.56s and detroit. PM me if you need the setup.

    Thanks, but no thanks!! The reason I ask is, hubby bought this truck that supposedly had 4.10's. It's a K30. Definitely a Dana 60 front. While installing the Detroit on Sunday he found that it had 3.73's. I was just thinking, if Dana 60 never came with those gears that would be bad. Well maybe not; he'd have the perfect reason to go 4.56 right away. He wants to pop the front cover & look but hasn't had a chance.
