ok, i was told it was 17 spline but it is a fullfloater that is 60" wms-wms without having been previously narrowed. Also is 8-lug. Previous owner put isc brakes on it already. I know its not 30 spline for sure. I was just trying to research about what kind of flanges etc it will have on it.

Can you find out for sure how many splines it has, or an app. or somethig to narrow it down?

Model 60 rears came in 16, 23, 30, & 35 slpines

I am going to lean towards 16 and assume the owner miscounted because looking through my pm's from him he says it is 17. I will try to get the BOM# from him because that will probably help alot.

Edit* it also has stock 4.10 gears and an open carrier.

Why even get the axle? How hard is it to get a dirt cheap 30 spline 60? Even if you got this axle for free the time and money you spend on it could have just gone into gettin you a 30 spline. What do you want to know? I have one with a detroit. And no I didn't do it. It came under a vehicle I got. I can't believe somebody put disks on yours. Want to polish that turd further? I will sell you my gears (5.35) and detroit. :D

ok anyways, the fact that it was already the right width and had brand new disc brakes were no incentive what so ever.


any idea what it came out of since you seem to know so much :flipoff2: ?

I have found them under old fords. I think I have seen one under a dodge also. I found them looking for spare shafts. The one I have and the ones I have seen are full width. I don't know if yours is narrow. The shafts are really small, and not hard to break. You can measure but I am pretty sure that a 30 spline shaft will fit through the spindles is the good news.

I had a buddy bring home a 60, which he just assumed was a 30 spline.. so he didnt bother to check, and sure enough it was a 16 spline. If its got disc brakes, thats a good thing.. Just buy a 30 spline carrier and some 30 spline shafts, and you should be good to go, if I remember right.. it not that difficult to make the change.
