    my friend aquired several old dodge miltary trucks. he said one of them has a full floating rear end and i can have it. its a 1976 w200. any idea what rear end it is? im guessing maybe a dana 60?will this work in my blazer? i can move spring perches without a problem.

    thanks

    It should be a Dana 60 with 4:10 r&p

    any idea on spring perches on these? If its 4.10 i am gonna have to swap gears somehere. i have a full set of 3.73 and 4.56 front and rears but no 4.10's. im assuming you can get something in the 4.56 range for a d60. i may swap my d44 4.56 front with someone for some 4.10's just have to wait and see.

    thats exactly what i thought. if nothing else it can be under a trailer.

    thanks for the info

    Also, look into the rear lower shock mounts. I've often wondered why we don't utilize them on our GM's when converting to inboard /\.

    Center to center the spring perches are 44 1/2" apart

    WMS to WMS is 65".

    There is a carrier break at the 4:10 ratio 4:10 down and 4:56 and up.

    as far as shock mountins hanging down most of the Dodge guys are flipping the u bolts and welding a shock mount onto the axle tube.
