Dana 60 swap into 1995 F250 question

Can anyone advise me on exactly what parts are needed to replace the front end of a 1995 4x4 Diesel F250 with a king pin Dana 60? Can I avoid welding by purchasing the axle out of a specific year F350 (86-97 I assume)? What year(s) F350's had the king pin vs ball joint? Opinions on using the F250 front driveshaft vs the F350 version would be appreciated too. Thanks!

you wont need to weld anything to begin with...

you'll need a trac bar, and trac bar bracket. You'll want to change the leaf springs, but dont NEED to. it'll ride terrible though if you dont haha

Other than that, it should swap right in. Im sure someone else can give you the better things to do, but if you just want it in, thats the bare min.


Too many projects. Too little time...
