Can anyone help me ID these axles?
Front is a GM 10 bolt, rear looks like a Dana 60...
yep you can even see the "60" stamped into the housing.
Your eyes are better than mine... i went by the cover.
Are they worth spending money on? I only paid $200 for both of them thinking I would build them up but I am hearing the front 10-bolt might not be so good for wheeling. I don't plan on doing anything hard core. Mostly cruising the desert.
10 bolt is fine for tires 35" and under. A 10 bolt front is stronger than a 10 bolt rear too. Hard to go wrong for $200 as long as the gears match. I personally wouldn't spend a bunch of money trying to make that 10 bolt front bulletproof though. At most I'd chuck a lunchbox locker in it and some Spicer U-joints.
I'd guess that D60 rear was orginally under a Ford? It's got smallish axle shafts IIRC. similar to D44 shafts and 30 spline.
I'd wheel em for the money...just don't expect to run 40's and a doubler in the rocks.
