You will need all the steering components ,tie rods,tie rod sleeves, track bar and track bar bracket.You can use the pittman arm and the hubs off of the 250 axle.I believe the 92 thru 97 d60 will be ball joint type and older ones will be kingpin

Welcome to the org, use the 350 springs, unless you can get your hands on something better, and i hear the king pin is stronger, but I don't know much bout axles other than the ttb sucks

Grab the 350 springs both front and rear.
Just do a check on all seals and bearing on the axle before installing it..

I went with a newer one for the All Wheel Disc Brakes.. Also easier to change front Discs, Ect. .

Just grab everything off the other truck.. all the steering, springs. bolts. ect.
mine came with a stock steering stab.. i put duals on it then just rolled it under and hooked it up..

If the axle had been disconnected from the driveshaft for a while make sure you clean out the holes good so the bolts go back in smoothly

Good Luck with your swap
