I found a guy that has two reverse rotation Dana 60 fronts. Im assuming there both fords. Well heres the deal, one has a bent tube on one side and the other 60 is in fine condition. As far as I know they are both incomplete as far as knuckles, etc. Still waiting to here back from him on all the details. Anyways is $1000 bucks for both a good deal? I figure I could convert one into a rear and the other be my front...?? Thanks for any advice. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

retubing is semi-cheap, but you need the Kunckles out, that the $$ part

I would haggle on that price a little bit if they don't have knuckles or any of that stuff. Basically all you are buying is the reverse cut center section. These sell for $200 to $500. If it comes with most of the stuff from the knuckles out then it is an awesome deal.

I would pay to have the bent one checked for cracks. If your bending tubes, you were beating on it very hard! It would be a real bummer if it turned out to be junk.

There was just one on here in this for sale section for $400. ditto on the checking for cracks in the casting on the housing with the bent tube. even on one with a straight tube you should check lots of bent ones get straightened.

99% of the time if the tube is bent, the center section is cracked or wasted. The tube is thicker and stronger than the part of the casting it presses into. Sooooo my guess is the bent one is junk.
