    there are 35 spline rear diffs, but i bet that does have to do with the price difference.

    according to the prices listed at 4 wheel parts, they are all the same, whether it be a 16, 30, or 35 spline D60. $574.99 for either carrier.

    Not sure where you guys are buying your D60 detroits but i bought mine from Randy's Ring & Pinion and paid $489.00, that was about 1 1/2 years ago though.

    As another option, I have heard a lot of people say that the Lock-Rite locker has worked well in their 60's in the front :dunno: Something to consider

    I just googled it because prices for different spline counts sounded fishy to me. 4WP was the first big name that popped up.

    Lock-rites are ok for mild wheeling... but, nothing beats a full true locker.

    Plain and simple, for $300 difference you need to shop somewhere else. :deal:
