    That's what I don't understand about it.

    The only thing that's really high dollar is the gears and the shafts. Everything else is blah. And for that price I don't even get the 35 spline outer upgrade. He tried tricking me with the 35 spline Moser inners.

    Look out now! That extra thick diff cover might just stand up to a rock. Let's not forget that warranty either. I'm willing to bet it only covers the bearings. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    On top of everything else, he didn't specify what kind of D60 it was. I asked for a Ford Hi Pinion D60. It's probably a standard Chevy unit.

    It's a good thing I didn't buy it from them.

    Are there any major strength issues between the kingpins and the ball joints? I seriously doubt Ford would've put them on there if they were too weak for it.

    Silver...that's what I'm looking for, but I'm not having very much luck on it.

    I would go with a GM 60, but I'm going the cheap route. The truck it's going into is short, so I'm gonna need my rear driveshaft length just as much as my front. Installing the Doubler will help, using the Ford 205 will be easier than a TH400 style 205 to find and cheaper as well, and the HP60 will help my front angle. I was planning on putting GM outers on it, so really all I need is the housing itself.
