Where do I look for a D 60 and what should I spend on one?
Try doing a search on Ebay, that's where I bought mine. ALso watch the for sale section on the pirate 4x4 board. Chevy style 60's are a little cheaper, I've seen some for $600. Average is between $800 and $1200. I bought a HP Dana 60 that was totally rebuilt for $1275. You can try Junkyards but they are getting pretty scarce.
Hope that helps.
The yards around here want about $1200 and thats if they have one. I bought a complete 1-ton flatbed from a cement contractor for a $1000 to get mine.
Dude what are you talking about? Chevy D60 are more expensive than the others?
If you find one for 600, buy everyone you can. I'll pay you 700 for each of them...
not more expensive the a D60 out of a 78-79 ferd, i called Boyce to get one for my buddy and they said 3300 for the ford and like 2200 for chev, (numbers arent exact but close enough)
dude, how far away are you from mexico. i've ran into a few down there for well under the prices mentiond. lot of people down there don't like the 8lug setup and you may be able to just swap your 6-lug d44/c10 for it /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
Depending on where you are from and located, take an afternoon drive around some country sides and search around the farmers homes from the roads for dead and abandoned trucks in their back yard or fields.
I find mine this way sometimes, whenever I'm lucky. My hometown is all farming stuff, so the trucks are parked here and there, but very seldom do I find a K30. Most are K20's.
There's an ad in my local Thrifty Nickle for a D60 with 4.10 for $100. I don't know what kind of shape it is in, but if you want to know, I'll give the guy a call and try to check it out.
Sounds like thats the REAR end!! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif
I thought about it for about 5 minutes and of course I know nothing until I would be able to inspect it, and heck, I could probably turn it around and make a nice profit off of it, but my "sponsor" doesn't really like the fact that I have another spare axle sitting around.
Hey Bubba Ray, if it's for the front, lemme know! Sounds too good to be true though. /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif
Don't really want to go to Mexico. I live close but have had 3 friends killed down there.
Go to junkyarddog.com and do a search for D60. Thats how I found mine. I know ya'll are gonna hate me, but I found mine for $550 with 4.56 gears, open carrier, and in perfect condition except for bent tierod. I think it was an ex-military unit.
do the junkyard guys know what they are worth?
My local unkyard in fresno is having everything is half off
so im going to head up there and look for one just for grins
"not more expensive the a D60 out of a 78-79 ferd, i called Boyce to get one for my buddy and they said 3300 for the ford and like 2200 for chev"
Just cuz one place charges more dosn't make it so...
So since Avalanche charges 4200 for a Dana 44, that makes the D60 cheaper than a D44 (using your logic)?
Overall, which is what we are talking about, the GM axles have a higher retail value than the Fords.
It's a rearend.
