Dana 60 swap

I just bought a Dana 60 to eventually put into my F250 in place of the TTB. But the D60 is in pretty bad shape. Im curious to see how much you guys think it will cost to get it rebuild.
Also the D60 is a balljoint off of a 96 f350 that only had 58k miles on it. It has been sitting in some guys backyard in the weather for about a year.

Re: Dana 60 swap

I think I have about $500 in my dana 60 rebuild and I still need new rotors & will likely replace the 200K miles calipers..
Parts are not cheap! Timken wheel bearings, Mile marker hubs, all new seals, MAS ball joints, Spicer U joints, new U bolts and more
Plus I sprung for a RSK, used Superduty leafs and all new steering linkage = more $$$$

Worth every penny and hour of work, this is a big job but soooo worth it!!
I think of it as basically this would be two car payments for somebody else who is not addicted to building and driving old trucks
End result is a near new front axle and suspension that is ready to haul another 200K miles

Seeing as the diff only has 58k miles on it I wouldn't think I would have to do anything other than crack it open and put a new gasket and lube in it. The Yokes and U joints all looks pretty crusty so I will probably have to do some work to them.

Re: Dana 60 swap

What year is your truck? There is a small change in the ball joint D60 in '95. If you have a pre '95 truck, I may have a deal for you. I'll message you...

1996 F250 CCSB, 4x4, auto PSD, stainless window vents.

Signature file limitations keep me from sharing more information. Follow this link to find my threads: D60 RSK install, Air vent cleaning, etc.

Re: Dana 60 swap

If the F-350 driveshaft is available, get it. The cardan joint shaft can solve some vibration problems that may occur using the F-250 driveshaft.
