I was wondering if someone could tell me if this is a dana 60 housing or not.
nah...ill happily take it off your hands for you
jk, it is one...but ill still take it off ur hands for ya.
Sorry, but i gotta keep this one. How were you able to tell its a dana 60 housing and not a 44? Thanks.
I can tell by looking at the raised portion of the diff cover around the fill plug.
And the bolt holes instead of the u-bolt.
And the inner C's. Kingpins....
awesome thats what i wanted to know. Thanks.
Its a 60, try to pick it up, if you cant its a 60
There are no balljoints, only 3 u bolts used, 2 bolts for the other.
hopefully, i will be able to grind off those little brackets on the spring perches, and still have an ok surface for the leaf springs. Does any one have a good sugestion as to going and grinding those brackets off the spring perches? THanks.
If you look on the bottom right corner of the housing there should be a "60F" cast into the webing.
I'd start on the welds with a cutoff wheel and pry bar first. Then grind the welds clean. Wonder what kind of jerry rig they were used for? Maybe some brackets for 1.5" springs on an escort
cutoff wheel to start............BFH to finish
Ah you lucky kid, how'd you come across that?
Maybe some form of 3 link? It looks like there is 1/2 plate on the pumpkin on top. What ever it was it sure was jacked.
yea the guy said the owner before him had some lame ass link setup going on. Thanks for the help.
