When I did mine, I was needing to do some steering replacement on the 50, so it was perfect timing. I dropped the whole assembly as one piece. The front drive shaft bolted right up to the 60. The brake calipers (fairly new / great pads) swapped right over (didn't have to bleed the system). The steering components are different. I also pulled the 50 leaf springs and replaced with 350 leafs. Want to do the RSK/PSD swap in the future though. I have heard about the 250 springs not being too good on the 60, that they will work temporarily, but not recommended (again, no personal experience). The pittman arm from the 250 was retained and it kept things in line. Make sure that you get the track bar bracket and bar from the donor, along with the drivers side (if I remember correctly) leaf spring/u-bolt plates (have heard they are hard to get).
Hope this helps some.
