    ok, I'm trying to locate some heavy duty axles for my K20 suburban buildup project, and the question has been forced into my head by some reasonably priced dodge stuff I've found for sale... will Dodge a dodge front D60 work on my K20? or will the differential be on the worng side? I know I'll have to grind, and relocate the spring perches, but that kinda goes without saying when dealing with axle swaps...

    at any rate, thankyou in advance,

    -Rich

    i just put a dodge dana 60 in my blazer you do not NEED to move the spring pearches they are just off by a little bit what i did was bolt the driver side in not tight but tight enough to keep the center pin from moving then rais the pass side and just spread the springs apart slightly you will need a chevy dana 60 steering arm as chevy and dodge tierod ends are not the same and you may also need a chevy yoke for the driveline to bolt to /forums/images/icons/smile.gif hope this helps /forums/images/icons/smile.gif if you have any other questions just ask /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
