    A D60 is a D60 if we're talking about R&P. Yes they'll fit in the housing. Carriers may be a different story, but yes, there is a way to use them.

    Most importantly, make sure they have the proper spline count for the shafts. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Oh yeah, DUH!! /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    I didn't read the subject title very good. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Yeah, be aware of the carrier splits depending on the ratio you want.

    Man, I'm an ass! /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif
