    Are there Spicer stubs I can get for a Ford Dana 60? I haven't found any in limited searching. Only thing I have found is Yukon and Superior stubs. Rather get Superiors but I can't afford that right now so if I can cheap out with Spicers, I want to.

    I've never found spicers for the Ford in all the looking I've done.

    That being said, I'm sure some one can mod a chevy stub to fit the ford.....but that adds $$$ so the yukons would probably work out as a better deal.

    cutting the Chevy's to fit is no problem. But then I'd have to find someone to cut or grind in a snap ring groove, even my drive slugs need a snap ring. Guess its going to be Yukons.

    We mod my ford spicer stuff and it really is not hard. In fact one of my paper weights on my desk is the cut off.
    That being said I would buy the yukons. Slightly stronger and I don't think they are any more expensive at all.
    I did two complete sets of shafts for the buggy 3 1/2 years ago when I finished it and am now using the spare set of shafts so the next thing I get will be yukons because superiors are a little out of my budget as well.

    As mentioned, Spicer never made a stock application 35-spline stub that will fit a Ford axle. Before the Yukons came out there were several places that would modify a GM 35-spline stub to work with the Ford stuff, but I doubt they are any cheaper

    me thinks you lucked out. Ford ones a little more expensive and not that cheap by any means($195 on Ebay right now).
