    I found a set of 3/4 ton axles off a sub for $400.The front end is missing the tie rod. Will my 10 bolt rod work in it's place? I don't have any knowledge of Dana's so I'm hoping it is a 60, if not I'm not going to buy them. The seller doesn't know either. They are 8 lug though, and I plan on running 38's or 39's with hopefully 4.10's.

    It is more than likely an 8 lug Dana 44 or 10 bolt. To my knowledge they never put 60's in 3/4 tons. Someone else might be able to back me up on this.

    Depends on years but some years had a 14bf rear but all 3/4 ton subs had D44 or 10bolt.
    The only way this would be a D60 is if the previous owner swaped it in. :D

    Well it's not a 10 bolt front but it is a 14 bolt rear I know what they look like. It's probably a 44 I need to take some pictures of them. And I thought I found a good deal, oh well!

    the tie rod will work, the knuckles must be from the same axle ie 10 bolt to 10 bolt or 44 to 44.. No dana 60f in subs period unless swapped and if its swapped, the owner would probably know about it.
