difference between a kingpin dodge dana 60 and a chevy 60

I have the oppertunity to pick up a set of dodge dana 60's for my blazer cheap. Front is kingpin, has the internal hubs like the gm, and has 4:10's. Is there any difference between the 2? a friend told me just the yokes are different. everything inside is the same as the gm. Is that true?

IIRC the the spring perches are slightly different widths and although the stub shafts are the same the inners are different depending on application. I think the SRW Dodge is 67" & the SRW Gm 69"?

Dodge perch width is about 1/2" closer and the leaves are narrower as well. Most say that they can bow in the springs and they fit fine with a little encouragement

The dodge is narrower by a little bit. The dodge has a 2.5 wide spring perch and smaller leaf spring studs with a different top plate. the dodge the parch width is slightly narrower. The dodge has a shorter short side axle and tube. The dodge knuckle has the cast in steering arm up higher than the GM. Theres a light and heavy Dodge brake caliper(not sure about GM).


Nothing wrong with a Dodge D60 but it is a bit different than a GM.

not sure on year but seeing as how it has internal lockouts, it appears to be a 90-93

Good catch. If so make sure it is truly a D60 and not the odd-ball D61 used in those years as well.

4:10s (said in his OP) are the Dana 60. The Dana 61s use higher gears.

61 isnt a big deal. I have one on me schedule to rebuild. 60 gear's and spool with a spacer for the ring gear and some slightly longer bolts.
