Yup, junk axle. Not worth the time. I'll take it off your hands.

is it open knuckle? the 77.5+ had the desireable axle. If it's closed knuckle, take it to the scrap yard

its not a 1977.5, it has the 19 spline outers. Is there a way to run axle shafts from a 1977.5 - 1979 dana 60 or is getting custom axle the only way? thanks

76-77 Ford front 60's are open knuckle low pinion 30 spline inners and 19 spline outers. But they use the HD inner c's.

The shafts are the same length as the 78-79 so you can swap the carrier for 35 spline unit and run them. I have heard that the knuckle and maybe the spindle will need to be swapped for a later unit though as they have a smaller ID?
