Dana 60 conversion from TTB

I think the root problem of my tire wobble is the TTB front end. I think i need to do a dana 60 conversion. How many years back can I go from 1997 to keep the same lug pattern for the swap? I believe 92 - 97. Anyone familiar with the swap??

1986 - 1997 Just depends if you care for a king pin or ball joint style front axle.


1994 - 1997 axles will allow you to transfer your rotors, calipers, etc...right over. Go with an older axle, and you have to use that braking system on it, but the bolt pattern will still work for 'ya.

just do it!!
it only took me a couple of easy hours to do mine by myself and was definately worth it.
i used a king pin 60, out of a 89 F-350. they are stronger than the ball joint style.

youll snap an axle in a heart beat with the dana 44 with those bodggers and the torque of the powerstroke plus the only solid axle available from 86-97 was the d60 so if you found a d44 its out of a pre 79 and the width will be wrong for your truck.

Nice rig! About how much should a person expect to give for one of those Dana 60 front axels from a bone yard?

Between $1000 and $1500, depending on condition and completeness. I lucked up the last time i got one. It was a king pin axle from a dually and even came with the spacers and all brake hardware for $1000.

Cheaper to buy a whole truck, take what you need, sell the rest.


I've looked at several auctions, out West near you, and there are always some out there that are wrecked, high mileage, etc...that usually go at a fair price. See if you know anyone that has a dealer auction license.
