    <font color=blue>Does anybody know any good online junkyard networks? There's not that many junkyards near me and I'm trying to find a 8-lug dana 44 front and a dana 60 rear. No, I don't want a 14 bolt ff, it's too big and heavy for me, i'm only gonna run 35s or 36s and I don't care if the 60 won't bolt right in. I can get d60 parts easier because my dad works for a F*rd dealership. There's also more lockers availible for this. What trucks came with them? Didn't 67-72 pickups come with them, or am I dreaming this?

    Oh yeah, there's a 14 bolt ff at the garage around the corner so if anyone wants it let me know and I'll go over there and see what he wants for it. I'm in NE new jersey.</font color=blue>

    <font color=blue>at least he doesn't drive one of those. He's got a 57 chevy turquoise blue 81 k10 (soon to be a k30, he had the $400 for the axles before me) and a 65 vette 327. It's great because we can use the shop to work on our chevys when it's not packed with broken fords</font color=blue>
     
  4. there was a set of axles on the Off-raod board yesterday D44 and D60----check it out 250 I think it was !!!

    Try www.car-part.com/ I tried to add a live link for you but I can't seem to remember how. When you bring the website up just fill in the information they ask for and hit send. There are very few used parts that I have not been able to find using this site....good luck.

    Hey Biggray,
    Try this link http://www.copartfinder.com/
    It will list vehicles in junkyards with pictures and vin number, however it doesn't have a way of looking for parts.

    Good luck

    Javier

    <font color=blue>I saw those axles on the ORC board. they're in FL and i don't think the frontend will work. will the rear be wide enough?

    <font color=blue>Yeah that would be great, mabye I could convince him to send me a non-rebuilt one becuase I have acces to the tools and parts needed and I could save a few dollars that way. Do you know how much shipping would be to NJ? </font color=blue>

    Well I found the number, but it just says d60 front axles but he has all kinds of axles forsale so he may have rear 60s to here it is though.. 517 871 3631 Millington Michigan..

    Yes, GM did use Dana 60 rear ends in some 2WD pickups, '71 - '72 vintage. Pre 14 bolt FF, and after they stopped using the Eaton drop-out style.
