D60 Kingpin narrowed in Scout 800

I have searched Binder and I cannot find any info on this. Even my post has no response. I want to run a narrowed D60 in a Scout 800. I don't own a Scout yet so I can't take measurements.

If I took a D60 Dodge (pass side diff) and shortened it on both sides will the spring locations be OK on the axle based on the scout 800 frame? To elaborate, will there be room to mount the springs (SOA) on the outside is the pumpkin?

I plan to be around 63-64 wide as my rear will be a 14 bolt C&C.

Thoughts?

the driver side spring perch can be welded wherever you want it. the passenger side is cast into the pumpkin. there's not a lot of room to shorten the pass side. i think about 4" would be the limit.

Need help with Dana 60 widths...
Narrowing a Dana 60 for my 1980 CJ-5, are all Dana 60s the same width from the factory?...or as I'm assuming, are they different for the differing applications (Ford,Chev etc etc) or if someone has a Dana 60 already narrowed under their Jeep I need to know the backing plate to backing plate measurement if its narrowed to the Jeep wide track stance if you would please. So, ya...Thanks in advance.

Anytime ive narrowed an axle I bascally take all my measurements off the cast perch. That way everything lines up with the springs when I'm done. I know this doesn't help you but I've seen plenty of 63-64" 60's in jeeps so I would assume it's possible.

Take about 3-4" out of the long tube only. Should give you 28.5-29.5 spring pin spacing on a dodge and about an inch less on a chevy iirc.

When I narrowed my GM d60 I took 3" off each side as the factory spring perches already lined up with my 2.5" chevy springs mounted directly under the scout800 frame rails. Matches my C&C 14bolt perfectly at 63" wms-wms.



Honestly if you don't have the axle and scout in front of you, you shouldn't be worried about dimensions. This is one of those check twice cut once times and a few random guys opinions on the internet wont make your axle fit.

Impossible! Your tires aren't sticking out a foot on each side!

In all honesty, thus is what I would do. Just get some 5" bs wheels and call it good.

If you are staying with leafs, this is your best advice. His turned out really nice. Very clean and works awesome.
