Yes a chevy 60 makes for a good 60 to put in a jeep. King pin or ball joint each have their +'s and would prefer a ball joint one but most prefer a kingpin.

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?

There is no such thing as a ball joint chevy 60 they are all kingpin. So I wouldn't doubt it that it has been switched to an 8 lug 44 then it would be ball joint.

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.
