Are you sure it has ball joints? I pulled my D60 from an 86 and it was very king pin.
Make sure it isnt a one ton truck that someone already robbed the 60 and replaced with an 8 lug 10 bolt or D44 (thats what I did)
well its going into my 76 cj5. Replacing my scout 44 soa. I talked to the guy from the junkyard and he said is was ball joint. I was just wondering which was better the kingpin or ball joint. Why do you like the ball joint better?
It seems that people like the kigpin style because it is strong and easy to mount histeer arms on. The reason I like balljoint is it is not as sloppy as the kingpin style and you can mount the shocks on the "C" so that gets them another 2" or more out there and that is a big deal to me. I run a kingpin 60 and would like to go to a ball joint one.
