Dana 60 swap questions...
Ok so i know lots of people have done this swap so im asking for help in understanding what i need, if anything to do it.
i have bought a dana 60 out of an 86 F350 for $500. I'm wondering what im gonna need to complete this swap. The axle has 4.10 gears in it and my truck has 3.55's I know i will need to regear it, and i plan on adding a selectable dif. in the process.
Here's some pictures of the axle in the bed of my truck. It has two steering stablizers on it already. What else will I need to put this on my truck?
I know i have some crazy springs in the back, i don't know if putting the dana 60 will make my truck higher in the front and make the back look low, or if it will still be about the same. Whoever had this truck before had some sick springs put on it.
