    91 and before 1 ton 4x4 chevys for the bolt in version, dodge 1 tons have the right side drop too but the spring perch's are different now they use high pinions i think they changed around when chevy went to ifs, ford 1 tons use the driver side drop high pinion

    D60 from a chevy is a bolt in deal and only found in 77-91 1 ton trucks. I think also a 78-79 ford hi pinion but then you must change t-case to driver drop instead of passenger drop. The dodge is very close only off like 1/2" -1" IIRC.

    Dodge has never used a high pinion D60. Unless you can find a Dodge or Ford 60 for cheap, a Chevy 60 is your best bet. The Ford or Dodge 60's will require other mods which will require $$$. A Chevy 60 will practically bolt in and has the strongest knuckles of the three.
