I've seen the 90s dodge coil sprung 60 is drivers side. I know not direct bolt on but are knuckles and other parts interchangable? I see a few of those axles for sale pretty cheap compared to a ford 60. I think they don't have unlock able hubs though?.

Re: Differences in chevy/ ford/ dodge dana 60s?

Whenever dodge came out with the new body style in the 90's the switched to the driver siee drop.

I am not sure about parts interchange. Obviously dodge does not have the lockouts, but they also have the vacuum engage thing on the axle. I have looked at them myself and it would require A LOT of fad to work with a leaf sprung truck.

I am planning on swapping in an SD d60 in my dually. Hubs and rotors will be redrilled to 8x6.5 lug pattern. I have found on for dirt cheap compared to the obs d60 prices of $800+.

No idea on the Chevy axles...
