    I can't find one here for under $600!

    I have a full float dana 60 out of a dodge with 4.11s that I got for damn near free so I decided to put 3/4 ton running gear in my '84 Blazer. All I need is a front axle but I can't find a front end at any wrecking yard for a reasonable price.
    What type of money should they be hub to hub?

    Yeah, swap the outers if the rest of the axle is good.

    Just buy two 3/4 ton hubs and rotors from your local parts store for say a 79 K20 and then all you need is the caliper mounting backing plate and whala!!. Your old bearings will also work since the races should already be in the new hubs. But know is a good time to get knew one plus new outer axle seals as well. Your 1/2 ton calipers will also work.

    really, so that just means I just gotta get some 4.10s in there... Sweet! I thought the axle have heavier u joints or something.

    I just became a real member, is there a tech section with all the parts listed necessary for this conversion?

    yea, I pmed him...

    If I could get one with 4.10s in it, it would make it worth it, gears are gonna cost me $150 and I can't set them up myself.
