Just to name a few.

I know some dana 60's were 35 semi float, but can anyone actually confirm 35 spline FF from the factory.......I'm thinking this might be a rumor.

Are we so quick to forget that the 35 spline GM 14 bolt 10.5" rears are a dime a dozen and are one of the stronger axles short of Rockwells...they are also about 10 times easier to setup gears in than any Dana axle.

It took me about 3 days to setup the pinion and carrier shim in my Dana 60 front diff and about 1 hour to setup the pinion and carrier in my 14 bolt rear axle.

Later,

maybe nobody mentioned the 14 bolt cuz they're actually 30 spline...
30 spline the same size as a 60 35 spline ;)

Also, as a side note, almost every HD60 that you find will have 30 spline shafts.
Are you sure about this? I"m pretty sure that if it has 30 spline shafts then it isn't a HD Dana 60, just a standard 3/4 ton full floater. I think that if it has 30 spline shafts in front(D44) then it will have 30 spline rear shafts. 35 spline front end and it has 35 spline rear unless it's a chevy then it has a 14 bolt.

One evening with too much time on my hands I went through my dana books covering everything from 67 to 93. Ford, Chev, IH, and Dodge. The only confirmed 35 spline 60 shafts that I could find were in some Chevy HD 60's. BTW I found a 60HD in a Chev mini motorhome with 35 sp. Was 73 inches wide

I just wanted to mention that, although the 60 does not = the 61, some 61's are 35 spline FF

I think I read somewhere that the 60 HD can be found in the one ton mini school buses. These are probably the same thing as the mini motor homes.
