    stock in what? late 70s high pinion ford 60s demand a premium. Dually low pinion ones tend to get less. At any rate, a 60 is worth anywhere between $800 and $1200 depending on which one it is, location etc. Some people find them cheaper... but usually only because the seller doesn't have a clue.

    Define good? Does it have the gears you want? or traction device? What make is it? Low or high pinon? Front or rear axle?

    Look in the for sale section/ebay/craiglist to see what they are selling for. My guess is $1000 +/- 200 (thats American dollars of course) for a front GM dana 60 in decent condition

    The axle is a front and it is in a 79' chevy half ton right now. The truck has a rebuilt sbc350 and a 4spd. The interior is nice. The rear end is a 14bolt with disk brake conversion. The body is rough so i could get the whole truck for $800 canadian. There are alo good four inch lift springs in the front and also nice traction bars in the back.

    Whould you say its worth it?

    If it's really a Dana 60 then yes. Make sure it's not a 3/4t Dana 44 before you buy it. Dead give-aways are the 60f cast into center section, kingpins with the four bolts on top (instead of balljoints). And only has one u-bolt on the passenger side. bolts/studs in the center section.

    A lot, a lot of guys confuse the 8 lug D44's with D60's. Do your homework before you buy it. Other wise sounds like a good deal.

    I paid 800 Canadian for mine with 410's. It was out of a '79 single rear wheel truck. It was in a ditch, one broken rotor and It needed all bearings and a king pin kit but did come whith calipers that I had to rebuild and grind.

    So i I would say that's a hell of a deal.

    it is worth it expecially with the rear disc conversion....:bow:


    I could have got a pair of d60's (front/rear) for $450 but I dont need them..... and Id feel bad selling them to yall for a profit :haha:
