    :D There is a 73-87 k20 Suburban at a junk yard near my house. Front axle is 8-lug and at first glance looks to be a 3" axle tube. It's been there awhile (back corner of the junk yard no tires kind off thing) I want to make sure its a d60. Is it worth my while to dig the pumpkin out of the mud or did k20 subs use d44 8-luggers?
