D60 Free Sprin, Gears, Locker/Posi, Just Get New Axle?
Hi, first post here, thanks for the resource. I hope to be more active on here, I just got a 2002 F450 4x4.
So here goes with my first question.
I will be getting some 39" tires (Conti MPT 81) on super singles and I have heard about the poor design on the bearing for the D60 up front. I see the free spin kit costs around $2,000, then I have to get it installed or do it myself.
If I need to re-gear for the new tires I will be putting in either a locker or a posi
because the differential will be opened up and I figure why not at that point.
By the time I pay for all that, would I be better off ordering a complete, built, warranted axle and selling my original axle?
I'd appreciate any insight into this and thanks for the great forum.
