Dana 60 Swap Complete!!!
Finally, I have swapped out the TTB Dana 50 axle, for a straight Dana 60 unit!!
The truck's mileage was getting up there, and it was time to replace a few worn parts. So I figured this would a good time as any, to do the swap. So awihle ago, I searched for a Dana 60 axle. Prices were high for the axle alone, so I just bought a parts donor truck, removed the axle, and parted the rest of the truck out.
And (slowly), I have been rebuilding that axle. My new replacement is a 1997, which I wanted, so that my recently replced rotors and such, would transfer over. And now this axle has everything new, except the housing and differential!!
Not too bad of a swap. Just was a bit difficult trying to do everything by myself, but somehow I managed.
I still have a few more things to do, such as swap out the springs, add the sway bars, etc....... But the big and heavy work is done!!
