D60 question....

So Ive found a D60 front and rear for $500....its on a late 80s chevy blazer and is geared for mudding...5 something:1. It would obviously need to be regeared, but would this easily adapt onto my 95 obs? Should I just buy it anyway because its only $500?

Won't work.
Chevy and dodge are passenger drop. Fords are drivers drop. Basically the differential is on the wrong side.

I hear ya man.
Seems like there is an abundance of D60's with passenger drop, and next to none with the one we need.

my dodge was driver's side diff on the front. It was a 97 though. IIRC passenger side diff was switched after the first gen dodges.
