Re: d50 to d60 brakes

Nope. You need new calipers and pads due to the different way that they bolt up. I just did this on my 90 King pin axle, are you sure is a ball joint? If it is then its a 92+ but even then you would need a 95-97 dana 60 to swap your calipers over.

If your dana 60 is really a 1990, then it is king pins(not ball joints) and uses pin on style calipers.
Your 96 dana 50 uses the bolt on style caliper and will NOT work

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seat for OBS. PM me if any known
