    yeah, there are tons of variations on the D60... the pirate d60 bible should clear things up. Pretty much the ultimate D60 is the late 70s Ford hipinion 60. High pinion + kingpins + open knuckles = best combo. Chevy low-pinion + kingpin + open knuckle axles are the next best option and a lot more common.
