92 F350 front D60 question

I tried searching the board, and couldn't find the answer. I have a D60 front axle housing from a 92 F350. When I got it, the inner axle shafts, spindles, hubs, rotors were gone. Will the shafts, spindles, hubs, etc off any other Ford front work in the Dana 60 front axle? I was wondering if a later D50 or even a TTB front end possibly having interchangeable parts? I'm thinking about offing this axle, and would like to sell complete.

You have just a housing, and you want to make it complete, just to get rid of it?

Going to spend a dollar to buy a dime on that deal.

If your dead set on it, pretty much any kingpin axle parts will work, except the shafts. Have to use the later model kingpin shafts because of length.

All in all, It's a retarded idea, but go for it.

Dahoyle is actually right, you will loose money on that. The junkyards that sell Dana 60 parts individually sell them for what they are worth. New parts? Fuhgidaboudit.

Me personally, I would buy what you have now for a severely discounted price so I could build a race ready KP 60 using Reid Racing inner C's and knuckles, Ballistic Fab Double Shear high steer arms, RCV Performance shafts, Dynatrac Lockouts, ARB or Detroit locker, Ruff Stuff cover......
Yeah, I would build that $100 housing into $5000 axle.

Thanks for the commentary.....even though I was only looking for technical info. Nah...won't spend a dollar to make a dime....no point in that. I don't know where you are, but I know in my area I can scrounge up parts from other applications for less....if other applications share parts.....which was the whole point of this thread. I know I'm highly unlikely to find another D60 in my normal rounds to scrounge parts off of, which is why I was asking about other Ford front ends that would have useable parts. If I can't find them in my normal rounds....they will be too expensive.

Dahoyle wrote...""pretty much any kingpin axle parts will work, except the shafts. Have to use the later model kingpin shafts because of length.""

Did you mean later model ball joint shafts{this housing has ball joint knuckles}? That sentence seems to conflict with itself....use any kingpin parts, except the shafts, but then use later kingpin shafts.

Ha! $100 housing....uh huh, sure. I'll keep it if that's all you'd say it's worth....but time will prove that out. I was considering keeping it for my truck, which could still happen, but I'd rather have the coin right now.

FWIW, I have all the parts to make that housing complete.

I did some part # cross referencing this weekend between D50 TTB, 92 F250 4WD...and....D60 solid axle, 92 F350 4WD....and I found that the hubs/rotors, & calipers are the same between 50 TTB and 60. What I haven't found info on is the spindles....anyone know if they're the same?

On the axle shafts, I'd imagine they're specific since the TTB is a totally different animal, and the later D50 had multiple changes when it hit the Super Duty line.

any shafts 86-97 from a D60 will work, hubs and rotors will work. Sounds like you have the knuckles so that's not a problem. Spindle has to be for a 92-97 IIRC Unless you've got the best junk yard ever, and with D60 prices right now, I'd look for another axle.

Spindles don't swap, but everything rotor out does. Find a floppy 50 and grab everything off the spindle and then all you need are shafts and spindles.

I have a line on some Dana 50 front shafts? Work or no work.....from Panthers65 reply I'm thinking no, but figured I'd ask for clarification.

No, TTB50 Knuckles are not the same as Dana 60 BJ knuckles.

The short shafts are the same from 1985-1997 AFIAK as well (I have swapped them between many times).

BJ 60 spindles will interchange with TTB50 spindles.

TTB50 shafts are not interechangeable with a Dana 60 at all.

When i mentioned D50 shafts....I was talking solid axle D50, like from a Super Duty. Then it dawned on me the outers on that D50 would be different since the Super Duty used a unitized bearing. So those axle shafts are probably out even though they are from a solid axle front.

There are 2 replies above....one saying BJ60 spindles and TTB50 spindles are the same, and another saying they are not. Anyone know definitively?

I have the knuckles on the axle housing already, so I'm good there.

What I need..... D60 inner shafts, both sides, with outer stubs
spindles
brakes

I have shitty calipers that need turned in for cores. I'd guess you are not close enough to IN to make use of them, and you would have to live damn near next door for you to come out ahead on them...

a 92 should be a Ball joint axle.
Here is some light reading for you.

Yep....bj60 it is. Thanks for the link to that article. I had to set this aside and read it tonight when I had the time....that is a long ass article, but lots of good info.

1 vote says TTB50 spindle is the same as BJ60 spindle
1 vote says they're not the same
Any more voters?

A ttb 50 spindle will work on a Dana 60. I've broken both my spindles and replaced them with ttb50 units. As they are easy to find in the jy.

Knuckles will not interchange.

They are the same. It doesn't matter who votes they aren't. It's a fact they are the same (obviously we are talking pre Super Duty here).

Yeah, my bad. Had my head up my ass on the switch from kingpin to BJ. Was thinking 92 was last year for KP. Double checked, and was wrong. Still won't make it much easier or cheaper to complete the axle tho.

they are not the same but they do interchange. i built an axle just like you did out of a '97 BJ60 and used D50 stuff from the knuckles out

I found a set of axle shafts from a 79 Ford D60 front axle. I think they would be different from what I need for this 92 axle, but figured I'd ask here for confirmation. Wasn't the pumpkin shifted over on the later D60 vs. the earlier D60(79 vintage)? The 79 axles I found are a good deal and within 25 miles of me.

78-79 axles wont work the diff is centered more to the center. You need 86-97 shafts.
