    can anyone give me some estimates on what a Ford D60 open knuckle front end is worth, and what is it's availability? I didn't get a chance to check if it was the reverse rotation unit. I believe all ford d60 fronts from the 70's were though, i'm not positive. I am looking to sell it, and want to know a ballpark figure. It is off a late 70's dually 1-ton. Thanks.

    Jack, I can only tell you about mine however I had looked all over before I found the one I did buy. I purchased a 1978 Ford D60 housing only (king pins) for $700 in Montreal Canada from a fellow ColoradoK5 member (HDdave). I then had Dave locate the rest of the parts in Canada and do a complete rebuild includeing new ring & pinion, used inner shafts, used outer GM shafts, new disc brakes complete, New warn hubes, used GM shock mounts installed and then had it shipped to Tucson, Arizona via AirExpress. I think the total ended up costing about $2400. I consider it a good investment but also a risky way to buy something that turned out good for me. You will then need a Ford Tcase.

    I'm guessing that you got a pretty good deal on that D60, from what I hear locally, people are buying junkyard GM units for $1500. I am just wondering if it is a fair price for the Ford D60 @ $1500. Thanks for the replies. $50 huh? Wouldn't all of us(except for me) love a deal like that! (:

    $1000 will get you a quick buyer. $1500 may take a little time to find a buyer.

    Why not try selling it on eBay? There are always stupid people who pay just about anything for this axle. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Or, you can go to <a target="_blank" href=http://pirate4x4.com>pirate4x4.com</a>, register and sell it to one of those fruit cakes. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
