    I put out a search on a few junkyard web pages for a d60 front and this was sent to me.

    "I have a rebuilt Dana 60 front axle with 4.56 gears and all new single wheel ends for $1900.00 complete. Please call me at the toll-free number listed below if I can help you further. Thanks"

    To me that seems a little much but what do yall think?

    Well if it's truely "rebuilt" with new seals, any bad bearings replaced, complete with brake calipers, new rotors, pads and new tierod....It's not a bad price. Average price for a "rebuildable" D60 is about $1100-1200. New seals and the works would easlily add $500 on the average Rebuildable. You can find better deals if your paitent but if you wanted one now and can confirm that is rebuilt then it's a fair price.

    Well, I paid $800 for my D60 from a junkyard, then add the following (all prices rounded to the nearest $10);

    Ring and pinion with install kit $300
    Track lok to replace the open dif $200
    Bearings and seals $100 or so....
    Labor for ring and pinion install with new kingpin bushings, seals, lower bearing and seal, springs, grease zerks, and sandblasting price $550

    So you can easily put close to a thousand dollars into a trashed axle.

    If it is completely rebuilt, tell him to buy you a detroit to go with it, then id be all over it. My buddy is buying one next wednesday for $900 and his old trashed d44. Not a great deal, but i guess its average.

    I will be picking up a Dana 60 and a 14 bolt with Detroit locker and 4.56 gears this afternoon from a guy who deals in military surplus parts and vehicles. Both axle housings are complete and came out of running vehicles. I will be paying $1600 for the set. As of two weeks ago, he had two other Dana 60s and multiple 14 bolt, Detroit locked rear ends for sale as well. I will find out this afternoon if he still has the other Dana 60s and if they are still for sale.
