Quad is right, they dont interchange. D60's are pretty popular so it won't be hard to find the right ratio to match the rear. I have used randy's ring and pinion before and will swear by them from now on, awesome service.

I wouldn't recommend ever taking gears out and resetting them in a different axle anyway. So even if they'd fit... I wouldn't do it.

I've changed front 50 for a 50 and rear 10.5 for 10.5 both used with no problem at all. Now mind you I've broken a few but never due to install or fit problems. I use the same shim pack that I take out of the housing I'm reinstalling into.
