what are you running in yours scott?BadAZYj said:Just bore the spindles and get yukon shafts. Talk to Hackle, he just has hid bored somewhere in phoenix, not sure if you can find someone in tucson to do it or not???
Do that, or you will later.rockr said:...bore spindles and go 35 spline BEFORE i fork out the dough fer the detroit
the front d44 shafts dont support the weight of the vehicle either and they snap all the time...as do rear 60 shaftsRobert said:I would not be so concerned about the D60 shafts being the same as D44 shafts. You are comparing apples to oranges. The FF D60 shafts are isolated from supporting the weight of the vehicle, and will put up with A LOT more abuse than the D44 shafts will.

the semi float 60's have 35 spline shafts...i would rather run a semi float 35sp than a full float 30sp
I would go this route! Bore the spindles to 1.62" get a new carrier and the shafts from yukon.KJ4Me said:only way you get 1.5" shafts and 35 spline stock is on a D70 rear. Good luck. it'll be easier to bore out and get NEW shafts from Yukon (and new carrier)
Blatant said:Posts like this are always good for a laugh. If you've decided, based on your driving style and tire size, that a D44 front axle is what you need for your rig, I don't think you should throw a lot of money at the D60 rear.
You're MUCH more likely to break that front than a 30-spline D60 rear shaft. For reference -- as Scott can attest to -- I ran a welded 30-spline 60 rear for a long time with 38.5 SX and never broke a shaft.
I say run what you have until you've proven that it doesn't meet your needs.
