Nah, none of us know if a Dana 60 is any good.

Better pass on that one.

Actually, I just said that because you posted in all caps, which is generally considered annoying and yelling.

IF it is a real early (you didn't say what year) D60 it will have coarse spline axleshafts which will essentially make the whole assembly garbage.

Find out what it came from exactly and I'm sure we can help you out.

Don't think of it as a D60, but a D44 with a stronger R&P!

your worried about the C-clips breaking on a 8.8?(they don't it's only a jeep thing)
but yet you want to swap in another C-clip axle, with smaller shafts, less ground clearance, and the same pinion diameter...

hmmm..
