    Well, I found myself a dana 60 from a 79 dually, but the guy said it doesn't have any gears in it, other than that, its all there. i haven't looked at it yet, anything in particular i should look at? Also, if i'm gonna get a locker for it, does it matter what gear ratio it had? And how much does a set of gears usually run?

    oh yeah, anything else i should pull off it, I have a stock 82 k5 ex-diesel, (like what about the rear end??)

    thanks

    Get the spring plates along with the complete axle from hub to hub.

    If you're putting a locker in it, it doesn't matter what it has for gears.

    Gears run $150-220, Detroit is $550, and you can pick whatever ratio you want up to 7.17! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I dont have a 14b yet for the rear, but i will be before this ever gets driven, will I need to get new gears for the rear or would stock be fine, assuming i get the same ratio for the front?

    Thanks

    is that the kingpin bearing caps? I think parts labeled 44, 52 on the diagram at http://www.pirate4x4.com/tech/billavista/60_front/

    thanks

    The bearing caps. The things circled in yellow. If it doesnt have em, its no good to you.
