I began removing the 8-lug 10 bolt front in my 1984 Chevy 3/4 ton today to replace it with a Dodge Dana 60. I don't know what year the D60 is, but the guy I bought it from said it's a Dodge. Anyway, the Dana 60 axle tubes appear to be slightly larger in diameter than the GM 10 bolt I am in the process of taking out... not much... maybe 1/8" to 1/4". I am expecting I might need U-bolts with a larger spread. However, wider bolts won't fit the spring plates (connected to the sway bar). Also, the two studs coming out of the differential housing on the D60 only have a spread of about 3" center to center of the studs... the U-bolt inner U-bolt on the diff side on the 10 bolt spans about 4 3/4" center to center. Am I going to need different spring plates to install this axle??? What about the sway bar? The brakes and everything else looks to be a pretty straight forward conversion... getting the axle to fit the spring plates is another story. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
