Lots of info on here to search out on this subject, not hard to make your own brackets, but if I were to buy a set it would probably be from Sky-manufacturing, good pricing.

your diff will be on the wrong side - :shaking:
you need a ford / newer dodge axle with drivers drop to match your t case - or change your t case

Because those Dana made D60's with driver drops say Ford anywhere on them.

Search my screen name, I put a passenger drop D60 under mine. I just didn't use Ford's do to cost and avaliability, nothing to do with brand hate.

Wow you are a Retard. You can't write you can't spell , and I sure as hell would not trust anything you do to drive on a public road. Also Dana makes ford axles as was said. I did sas on my last S10 with a HP 60 I had the cash at the time , this Time I am using a LP44 , or LP60 . The Driver drop stuff seems to be more pricey . With that said search for stuff on here it is the largest resource for 4x4 info.

gone in 22 posts... cool

Well, you could have been more accepting of criticism, i guess. I figure when I post a thread to people that are my peers, I will gladly accept their criticism, as it may save either my wallet, or my life. heaven forbid someone else has more experience than I in one place or another...

We may sound condescending on this forum. Sometimes, we are.

The use of the English language is of concern to many people. Those of us that use it feel it necessary to try and keep it free of butchery. If you feel that we are giving you a hard time due to your ineptitude with our language, then go back to school, learn to read, to write, and to compose a simple sentence before you bring your ignorance onto this site.

A very good friend of mine is an accomplished mechanic. I say accomplished in meaning that he has built desert racers, mud racers, circle track cars, drag racers, and many other types. He is almost illiterate. Yet, if he were to come on to this website and post, his knowledge would be respected due to his attitude towards the people he helped.

Most of the time, acceptance can be linked towards attitude. If your attitude is not acceptable, people will find something else to bitch about.

Now, this post is not tech. To make it tech, lets add the following:

Dodge made trucks with Dana 60s.
Ford made trucks with Dana 60s
GM made trucks with Dana 60s.

Dana is an axle manufacturer that services the big 3 auto manufacturers. They buy from Dana to fill their needs. Saying a dana 60 is a Ford only part is not quite right.. the high pinion part is Ford specific. Dana 60s are a good axle that is available across the manufacturing spectrum.

good luck with that.

its a Dana axle not a ford axle!!!

It doesnt matter if it was a ford or a dodge or a goddamn yugo the axle was made by dana the only difference is what side they put the spring perch and the long tube on. I have a chevy 14 bolt and chevy dana 60 under my toyota and a Ford Dana 44 under my chevy. the reason was simply so I did not have to modify my exhaust on either truck . and my chevy is getting a divorced NP205 from the same ford as the front axle. Its the same as the chevy and dodge 205. its just if I use a divoced ford case I make a short driveshaft and crossmember and leave the stock 4l60e in place and dont have to touch my exhaust or tranny. Sometimes Its just easier to get over a silly brand name fetish and do the mod that makes more sense. if you knew how many brands share parts you might decide to take your stupid piss on ford sticker off your window.
