    I've got some Dodge axle experience..... and some advice.

    Check everything...!

    The answer is - Probably

    Is it something you want - Maybe

    W/ a diesel, you may have a D60 front. Or maybe it's a D44. Either way the axle will bolt into a Chevy, but the spring perch width is like 1/2" different. So you either gotta "pry" the springs into place or use offset bushings to make it right.

    But beware...! There are quirks w/ Dodge axles that are not really documented. I recently found that I had 2 Dodge disc brake D44's that are different widths.... :eek:...

    And if you think it is a D60, beware of the D61....

    Hope I've helped...
