Dana 60 difference

I found a dana 60 for my 96 F250 but I was told it would not work.

Will the only Dana 60 that bolts to my truck be another Dana 60 ball joint style from 1992-1997?

I found a 1988 kingpin style dana 60, but someone told me that it will not be a bolt in like a 92-97 would.

Any info would be great...thanks

as long as pinion angle and rotation are the same it should work. Might not be a direct bolt in but with some fab work it should be not too big of a deal.

It Should bolt in...but the wheel bolt pattern will be different and the track bar mount is different not sure if the steering linkage will hook up just to name a few all this can be fixed but it will cost ya. you may be better off lookin for one that will fit, but that will take all the "fun" out of it

it'll bolt right in. i put a 89 Dana 60 in my 95 and it was a snap, everything bolted right up. the brakes were different but my lines bolted right up to the calipers.
i did it by myself in about 2 1/2 hours, with a little help you could do it in a lot less.
and the bolt pattern only changes if you go to a superduty front end, they are metric. and the track bar bolted right in too. totally worth it.

Just slap it in. As long as you know what year to get brake parts for, you're good to go. Everything else will work.

yeah the king pins are alot stronger than ball joints, they are just more expensive to replace.
