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.
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.
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.
