The springs play a major role in the TTB alignment. If they sag too much, you may be better off to get new ones. I do recommend a 60, though. Good luck!

That is about the going rate on a D60. Try to find a high pinion as well. They are a little harder to come by but worth it if you ever lift your truck. I am looking ito doing a D60 swap or even a complete set of SD axles under mine one of these days.

Yeah they are high. Im looking for a front Dana 60 right now and that is the going rate like NovaJoe said. Also as long as its a Ford Dana 60 it will be high pinion
