Is this a neck down inner axle shaft? Dana 60
Cant really tell from the pic but I would say the inner shaft is NON-neck down.
necked down shafts are big on both ends & skinny in the middle
Ohhh...got it got it...I thought necked down meant it tappered at the inside just towards the end...
all the short side inners are "non-neckdown", can you post a pic of your long side shaft?
Well, that is interesting. Yeah, i will yank the long side tomorrow or Friday and post a picture...I go side tracked tonight trying to get the fu$*ing piece of crap U-Joint out...After 90 minutes it is in there and I am on here...
My really poor drawing of a "neck down" dana 60 shaft
Holy oversized pic batman! That's just annoying.
Here's a comparison pic for you.
Top one from my '84, bottom one from my '78.
That is not true.
In the last pic, the top is the non-neck down, while the bottom is a neck-down. They were changed around the mid 80's on most D60's.
That's what I was thinking and then your pic confirmed it.
I knew that pic would come in handy. I just took that when I was stealing the axle shafts from my tow rig and putting them into my wheeler. Figured the stepside would need them more.
Necked down on the bottom...that is not what I have. Thanks for the clarification!
sweet, learn something new every day. Good to know!
ya its neked down or not.
