    I am looking for a donor vehicle for an axel swap. Trying to go with a Dana 60 Front axel. What make year and model vehicle should I be looking for in the wrecking yards? I want as close to a bolt up as I can find for my 1979 K5 Blazer. thanks in advance. I thought I was in-luck with an axel out of a 1978 3/4 ton Dodge but it seems to be a Dana 44.

    Do all dana 60 have the one ubolt and 2 fixed bolt setup on the pass. side spring mounting?

    I know a guy that is using a D60 off a dualy truck. He just has a massive offset on the front wheels (all the way to the outside) and his works. It may open a few more doors for ya!

    I pulled both front D60 and rear 14 bolt out of an '84 1-ton. Bought it off of a cement contrator for $1000.

    Yes technically you can use a D60 off a dually, but you have to either do the wierd rims, or pay $ to get the hubs machined down.

    Could you not replace the hubs with new ones?

    Yeah, you can replace them with new ones, but would you want to pay around $700 for a new pair? /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Or from what I have been told, you can get the dually hubs machined down which is only around $400.

    Be patient. Steve probably has not gotten to yours yet since he has to deal with many others, too. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Patience. You will be orange before you know it. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
