most obvious part is Dodge and Chevy D60's are passenger side drop. were Ford is a driver side drop

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...

Would it really be that hard to put a dodge axle in? I have to imagine you could use the spring perches off either an OBS F150 or off the ram itself if you wanted to go with coils.

Slightly different question… I may need to change the ratio of my front '95 D60 from 3.55 to 4.10 and it would be nice to have the ring gear already pressed on a donor center carrier. Would a D60 carrier from the early king pin axles still work?

I envy those that know exactly which modification to make and in the most logical of sequences. But not enough to trade for my meanderings and misfires.

Yes, but the ring gear to carrier fit is rather snug not really a press fit.
