definitely give the d60s you look to buy a real good go over. I did not check anything but the gears and diff when I did my junkyard/craigslist shopping. I did the gears, and inner seal, bearings etc. and ball joints before I put it in. Later realized I installed an axle that needed one new spindle new spindle bearings, wheel bearings, short side axle (inner and outer) and ujoints!
In the end my dana 60 swap and rsk was one of the most expensive things I have done to this truck.
So don't be a dummy like me and try to source a axle that is in good shape.
Also, I cannot say enough about the SD springs and RSK. Best thing in the world! Dollar for dollar the best money I have spent on this pickup by far. Rides like an entirely different truck especially on bumpy terrain.
Also I got better turning radius with d60. Also no did not have to shorten my drive line. truck has a little lift to it from rsk so I don't know if that had any effect its, it only a couple inches so I doubt it.
Its a pretty strait forward swap and it will just feel awesome to see that junk twin beam in the scrap bin when your done!
