    Today I picked up my new Dana 60. It originally came out of a truck with 28,000 miles on it, now its got 5.13 gears, detroit locker, 35 spline shafts, crossover steer arm, new brakes, kingpins and all the goods rebuilt:D I'll be putting it in this winter, I cant wait.

    how much did the machining cost?

    I bought a DRW D60 for $360 with 4.56 gears. then paid $320 for 2 brand new SRW hubs with rotors, races, and wheel studs already installed from GM. $510 for crossover from ORD. $30 for u-bolts and its under my truck and been wheeled hard several times.

    60 bucks to have the flange cut off and true up the new wheel flange then new brake rotors, wheel studs, lug nuts wheel bearings inner an outer ,seals warn hubs, 1 new ubolt, 2.5 inch steering block and a drop pitman arm
    i don't remember exact prices but in total i think around 650 bucks for all that is listed above then another 809 bucks for a arb air locker
    some day i will go to cross over steering but not right now with the 2.5 inch block and drop pitman it works ok

    Talk to Willyswanter he has broken several shafts in his 60 and RyanB broke in clean in half:eek1: the whole axle not a shaft.

    The 60 didn't come with hubs. What do you guys recommend? lock outs or drive flanges? It's probably gonna end up being trail only since I just got an 88 k5 today
