Opportunity to purchase Dana 60

I'm new to the forum. I am looking to upgrade my front end to the Dana 60. Found this D60 a few miles from my house.
"93 Ford Dana 60 front axle complete hub to hub single wheel. 4.10 gears ball joint 8 on 6.5 bolt pattern. Good for F250 to F350 conversion"
He is asking $750 for the axle, no springs, but steering linkage is there. 126,000 miles on the donor truck that was totaled due to rear impact. Thoughts?

if you have the cash it is, but you are going to want to swap to the 350 springs if its a diesel, your stock 250 ones are gonna be very stiff, they can be found cheaper, but usually the going rate seems to be $1k

Are the springs already sold/gone, or is he selling them separately? If the latter, just for S&G, see if he'll throw in the springs for that price. That'd make it a sweet deal.
