D60/D50 part swap questions

K I got what I feel was a pretty good deal on a D60, but it is missing a spindle and I am not sure what brackets if any it comes with. So I have a couple questions.

Will a spindle off of a TTB fit onto the D60? I know that the hubs are interchangeable but I am not sure about the spindle.

How similiar are the Track bar components of a SD D50 to the D60 stuff?
I have a few SD friends that I could use as references to build my own brackets I think if they are pretty similar. And will a SD track bar swap out for a D60 one? O'reillys sells them for a reasonable price, so I was wondering if I could go that route?

Re: D60/D50 part swap questions

The d50 spindle will bolt to the D60 but it does not truely fit. The lip on the d50 spindle will not engage the d60 knuckle completely.

Re: D60/D50 part swap questions

it depends on the year dana 60 you have. if its a ball joint 60 the spindle is the same if its king pin its no go. the track bar setup on superduty trucks is totaly different

Re: D60/D50 part swap questions

The guy says it's out of a '90, so that means kingpin I assume.

Spindle will bolt on but is not quite right for your application

Track bars and mounts are COMPLETLY diffenent between a OBS and a SD

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

The spindles are close but not totally the same. The inner lip on the 60s are longer.

Grant, you can swap manual lockout hubs & bearings & that's about it between a 50 - 60.

I have a track bar from a Ball joint D60, but I think they are the same.

The track bar from the 86-97 is the same, the 99+ are different.
