Make ProRock D60 IFS Center

Take 1 05+ superduty front D60, cut accordingly, have housing machined, then use Curries CV 35 Spline stub shafts... both should have 35 deg pressure angle... Thoughts..

What does a Ford Dana 60 have to do with a ProRock aftermarket housing?

Isn't it technically a DANA 60 for a Ford

Ok now you're talking... instead of altering and welding to the cast housing. Someone years ago did something with a D44 on a Hummer. What flanges will work with the 60 housing? The tubing is 3.75" I think.. The big goal here is to use it in some version of a 4x4 trophy truck, just less $300K

he wants to make one out of a superduty axle instead of buying a prorock from dynatrac, hence the title make a prorock d60 ifs center

If the tubing is used to mount flanges and support brackets, structurally the concern is the initial/factory 60's center to tube welds holding up...

I'm still wondering about the tube to center welds... I see Currie and Spidertrax use the same mount points for their center sections(both 9's), looks like a 3 bolt plate for the axle flange.. maybe they'd be willing to part with a few billet mounting plates. Liking the $520 ea price for Curries series 30 35 spline...

You need to start looking at flange to flange measurements of an assembled ifs center.

So.. Currie is not selling any part of their housing due to not producing the unit in house.. however Moser will make custom axle stubs with ANY flange for 380$ (PAIR), and 100$ for 60 axle ends... I'd need custom axle bearing plates and then fabricate their housing ends to the 60s tubes.. Probably go with some basic CNC design and incorporate mounting points on the plates..

Is there any reason you can't just turn down and drill your desired bolt pattern into some semi-float shafts and retain them with a C-clip? From there you can run CVs for whatever application you fancy.


Modifying the housing would be a simple case of cutting it down to width and boring it to whatever ID the semi-float bearing and seal want.

C clip is definitely an option too... Just rough measuring looks like possibly 17" from flange to flange due to the casting plug welds.. It would be around 15" if I want to ignore most of them.. Anyone have info/experience with how far the tubes extend into the cast center.. also what the welds are like at those points, ie how many... how far into the cast before the tubes will pull out??

With out know what reason youre wanting a d60 specificaly, why even bother with a d60 oe conversion?

Juat get a 9.75 irs diff from a navigator or get a ruffstuff 9" housing withe brg flanges weled right to the housing.

Or a Camaro IRS chunk.

There are lots of IRS holding really big HP with wide tires and a hell of a lot of traction.

The chunk in the picture has an e-LSD that is pretty fucking close to a locker with 12v applied consistently instead of switched by the Body Control Module.

All the lockers and stuff also available.

Also has cooler ports.

12.5" - has 37 spline anti-hop axle shafts with it.

They're handling 1200 hp in 3900 lbs cars with 13.5" wide tires that go 8 seconds in the quarter and they go all year +

We want to do one f+r to go awd with an NP120 t-case in an all aluminum Jeep.

Maybe he wants high pinion for a front application?

Otherwise, 9.75 all day.

double check those pressure angles. Ford 60 should be 30 and many racing parts use 45. Ford 9" can be had in either

So you would be flipping the front one over? Those are pretty narrow, they look good for the rear.

I haven't thought too much about running a rear in the front.. I did read that there are oiling issues and gears being on the wrong side or something of the sort(dont quote me on that btw).. As far as a 9" I've done a bit of looking into it for the rear on my truck however I was told not to bother with it unless I was planning on running a 10" gear w/ MIN 40 spline shafts.. Gearworks is the only game for the larger 3rd housing and they have a HP front.. too much $ for 1.5" inches a side if we're talking the difference in 14" and 17" flange to flange.. Camaro irs is nodular iron??
