What is the differences in the housing on D60 rears??

I've found a couple different *styles* and a quick search did not lead me to a good thread on the differences between them.


I have seen the D60's that look just like a bigger D44, single "rib" around the cover area.

I found a couple other at the pull-a-part that had a double rib (8-lug FF out of a late Ford)

I have also seen housing with more slab sides (almost octagon shape).

not all of them have the little "60" stamped into the web, so I'm not 100% sure they all are D60's. It there and easy way (short of pulling a shaft, if still equipped) of telling a D70 from a D60? I have heard that covers are the same, and I have heard the covers are different.


This is going to be cut down and shaved into a semi-float w/1.5" 35-spline shafts... so its not *that* big of a deal, just if one housing is a better choice than the other....


thanks :beer:

Actually, D70 also cone in 32, and I think a 16 spline too.

But - either way - advice is still sound for telling it from a ff60 rear, as they are mostly 30 spline, and afaik, D70 never came in a 30 spline

Only possible confucion is a ff 35 spline 60 with a ff 35 spline 70, but the 60 in ff 35 is quite rare.
