    i currently have the gm 10 bolt axels front and rear. I soon plan on getting dana 60's front and rear and was wondering if i will need to get a new drive shaft along with these? Any suggestions on what kind and where from? thanks

    From what I have read and researched so far no u-jt change. I know there are Dana 60 frt swaps listed on sites all over the web. I'm actually looking into the same kinda swap because I found a good deal on a rear Dana 60. Love the axle but kinda puzzling that there are so few in the rears in GM. I'm still a pit puzzled on the driveshaft angles and length. If anyone has more info that would be great.

    They didn't go ovrboard with d60's in the rear because they already made great SF and FF 14bolts. The 14bff is more like a dana70.
