    I need a d60 front, and i think ive noticed that old school dodges have the diff on the same side as a chevy does, (passenger) Is this true? i think d60s are more common in these dodges cuz im yet to see a chev with a d60 front, can somone tell me if it is pretty much a bolt up swap, or is there welding involved?? Thank you

    the dodge dana 60 spring pearches are just a tad off but can be forced to work without changing anything but in my opinion they should be moved they are not even a half inch diferent on each side

    Josh, there is one for sale I believe - a member of the Oregon Bushhackers - sign up for their email list (we are not a true club but a gathering of 4 wheelers) at www.oregonbushhackers.org if you are interested in joining and/or look into that Dodge front axle more.
