    arent the van 14 bolts 3" wider and not need spacers on the rear. i was at the junkyard today and saw some. will one off a dodge or a ford fit? i saw lots of them but none 8 lug chevy vans at least that still had the axels.

    thanks

    i knew they werent a 14 bolt. i just thought i heard something about a d60 being in a dodge. i was worried about being able to match ujoints, gear ratios, and widths ect.

    thanks

    <font color="blue">But they might be 35 spline D60s and the later E250s and E350s had disk brakes with internal drum parking brakes /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. Measure wheel mounting surfaces, thats the only thing that matters since your going to have to change the spring pads and shock mounts anyway on anything thats not from a 3/4 ton chevy

    I'm pretty sure you will have to change your u-joints and yoke on your driveshaft. You will just have to measure to see if the axle is wide enough or not wide enough. I guess I misread the question, sorry /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    No apologies necesarry. im not exactly the clearest speaking person here. the only pics of a d60 i have seen are on the axel chart here. i know one of the dodges was a 1 ton and all the rest were 3/4 tons. am i supposed to measure from backing plate to backing plate i assume or just one half from the chunk over.

    thanks

    When measuring your axle or which ever one you are measuring I would measure WMS to WMS (wheel mounting surface) that way you will know about where you wheel and tire will be on your truck.
