Is a Dana44 axle socket the same as a Dana 60 axle socket?

    I've been trying to buy a axle nut socket for a Dana 60 and a lot of online places are selling the same one for 1/2 and 3/4 ton 4x4 as they are for the 1-tons.
    Are they the same or are they just confused?

    The 4 prong socket for a front D60 is bigger than a D44/10 bolt socket. I had to get mine from MAC Tools for about $50.

    My D44 front wa a 4 prong and my new 60 front is a 6 prong but I think I have read about 4 prong 60s too so probably depends on which style you need first. The 6 prong is the same as a 14FF 6 sprong too I am pretty sure

    Both my D44 and D60 are 4 prong (D60 is 1985 vintage) The D60 socket is just larger and cost me about $25 from the local parts store.
