Got a lead on a Dana 60...

So I found a Dana 60 out of a 1994 F350 with 4:11`s (which are perfect for my truck), with new pads and rotors, comes with the 350 springs and tracking bar, has no leaks and is all cleaned up for $900.

From what I have read, this seems like a pretty good deal. What do you guys think?

kingpin is 10 times stronger than ball joint. I pad 950 for my old king pin. I never had to even look at the kingpins. I just greased them and they were good.

Well boys, I'm pickin' it up tomorrow! Got it for $850. The guy said he was firm on $900 on the add, so I didn't figure he would budge much.

Now, it gets to sit in my garage and look pretty until I pay my parents off, when I can finally put it in!

I only found a handful of kingpin 60's, and the one I saw today was like $1,500
