I dont think so, and even if they did I wouldnt do it. 67-72 chevy parts cost about twice as much as 73-91 parts and are a lot harder to find and order, so I would say just wait and find the right axles.

the front will and the back just needs the springpads moved. in 71 u should have the open knucle disc brake 44 and a 60 in the back, good combo, but id look for a 14 bolt, 60s arent that strong

No it shouldn't be a D60,{only if it was a GMC would it be}it sould be an Eaton.There weren't very many D60's in Chevys.Much stronger than a D60.The pad width's are different but it would be a very good rear end.I have 4 or 5 of them.Thats what I run and will run in all my wheeling trucks.

i kinda thought it might be an eaton, but i wasnt sure if they were still using them in 71, or if they had gone to just the 60 then, cause i know the 14 bolt wasnt used until 73s. the reason i thought id be a 60 is my neighbor has a factory 3/4 ton 72, and that has a 60 in the rear

Where do they need to move to. I want to keep the springs I have. I'm new to this so don't know all the ins and outs like other people.

I mearured my old rearend and the new one. Both measure out at about 42". From what I can see it doesn't appear that I need to move anyhthing. Am I missing something. Old rearend is from a 72 new rearend is from a 78 jimmy.

If they measure the same it will bolt in. Might need different u bolts and spring plates if axle diameters are different.
