rear dana60 info

does anyone know if it is an available upgrade to convert
a 28 spline D60 rear axle to 35 spline shafts? Little brother's rear 60 came out of an 1984 Dodge p/u and is a full-floater, but small shafts....

sure can but it isn't as simple as swapping shafts. you have to bore the id of the spindles out to that of a d70 to fit the 35spl shafts. yukon sells a tool to do this but it's $$$! i'd like to do this to my 60 soon. also, you need a 35spl carrier.

Yup had to have mine bored out at a machine shop here in town.
Thats the only difference other than the new carrier.

Or swap in a 14 bolt and save the money.

You need check into it, but I think the 60 and 14 bolt brake set up is the same. There might be some spacing differences. Also, get your hands on a dana 70. Stonger than a 14 bolt and I know it will swap with 60 brake parts. Just be sure to check the spline counts, some are weak, most around '89 are 35 spline.
