    Is it a real Dana 60 or is a Dana 61 or Dana 50?

    You can do it but you'll have to get a transfer case (probably a NP241HD) out of a IFS Chevy and do all the custom work associated with that.

    A chevy d60 has a spring pad span of 32". It also has pass. side drop.
    The 91 ford d60 has a spring pad span of 36.5" and has drivers side drop.
    I'm sure the spring span can be corrected.
    You will need a ford transfer case.
    There may be an issue with pinion centerline to knuckle centerline? I think it's location is different not sure though. Good luck /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Nick, I am pretty sure I have pictures of my Ford D60 and Ford NP205 in my webshots album (engine&driveline). The link is in my signature. This definetly makes a nice setup.
