Picking up some 3" housings and was wondering if you could share how you came up with the cut for Chevy inners? Planning to weld on some Cs and swap out my Chevy 60 front. It would be nice to just buy a 3rd and swap everything over that I already.

I modeled everything up in Solidworks to get my cut lengths. Other people do it other ways. Is that what you are asking?

I don't have solidworks. I was just curious it there was a simple way of knowing exactly where to cut the tubes for the correct lengths. When I built my semifloat rear I just used the shaft measurement plate ruffstuff sells, guessed with my bearing cups and the Currie outer drawing they sent me to measure for shafts. If there's way more to it, I'll just drop the Cs and housings off at a shop.

I don't think there's an "easy" way. I just measured like 80 times, had a buddy come over and throw a fresh set of eyes on it to redo all my measurements. It was stressful.

I started a thread looking for a calculator of some sort:

https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/gener...lculation.html

Basically I think there are so many possible combinations with a Ford 9" that it would make the task of designing a calculator immeasurably complex.

noob question. I searched but didnt find. On heim steering I am using weaver fab's adapter bushing for the pass side for 3/4in bolt. for the driver side do u guys just drill it out? It looks like the bottom taper is larger then 3/4in though.

Just picked up a 60 from a 2007 F350. Im going to use Artec truss and run 4 link any real reason not to build a bracket for the coil over to mount to the top of the inner c where the coil spring was mounted, other then moving the shock up. Thanks

A friend has a 2005+ front axle, and this weekend broke an outer, and spit a clip on the other side.

Anyone planning on making chromoly shafts for these soon?

Just doing what I can! Hope there's an answer soon. Or else I'd ditch the whole thing for your other axle.

I heard from Artec that they have an SD 60 truss/bracket kit coming out for the TJ by the end of June? This will make my build of these axles much easier!

So been looking forward to this.................of course I have been giving them hell to get it out already. They keep focusing too much on JK junk.

I use shock conversion brackets (for like a XJ or TJ) and have built 3 this way with no issues... i forget what brand i used though... TMR maybe??? they are much thicker so plenty strong.

I have been following this thread for awhile and see tons on the 60 front... i am curious about the sterling though... ive looked all over and found one guy that mentioned it but never found out if he succeeded... Is it possible to use the front 60's inners on the sterling and build a rear steer setup on the sterling? same bolt pattern... same splines... same axle tube size... only difficult part is machining the sterling for the SD axle seals... shafts i would probably go custom or use two long side 60 shafts and cut them down and resplining... what am i missing to have not seen it done already?

I wouldn't machine for seals. I would just use aftermarket tube seals. The outer seals would go in the inner C's just like stock.

This is how i have been doing my steering the last two axles... honestly havent researched if anyones came up with anything yet to make it easier... but works well and cheap... long as you know how to weld to cast...

I drill the drivers side to 3/4in... the pass side i drill to 1in and have some 3/4ID 1inOD DOM i got off ebay and just use a safety washer on the heim from ruffstuff which is wider than 1in... washer on the bottom... plenty strong with zero issues so far...

the shaft would have to be cleaned up well then in that location... would help with keeping mud out though...

Not really. Look for the dana 60 seal thread describing the seals. This is all discussed there. I'll try to find it but I'm on my phone ...
