Dana 60 ID help...

Trying to ID this axle. Dana 60, but whomever welded the truss on, covered the BOM. Thanks...

Drivers rotor is cracked, hence the id issue.

I believe the kingpin models most parts are interchangable regardless of make.. but certainly dont quote that on me.. that may just be the kingpin parts

Unfortunately, what it was originally may, or may not help you with selecting the correct rotor for your setup.
What lug-pattern is it running? What calipers? Looks like a pre-88(or whenever?) Ford axle that's been shortened and converted to a smaller brake setup. Judging just by the caliper pins, I'd say it's likely to be a GM brake setup.
If the rotors are 5 on 5.5, it could be from a Ford full-size Bronco/F150. If 6-lug, then any GMC 1/2 ton/Blazer from 68 to 91, or even later. Not sure if Ford used that type of sliding-pin caliper in later years, but at least up to '79 the calipers slid directly on the mounts.

Good luck. Lot of good info in that Billavista article. Hopefully you can find what you need there.
If the outers have been converted though, it might be hard to glean just what's going to be needed.

Thanks... You are right on with three pics. Amazing.

So far I think I've narrowed to a late 70's ford. Axles have been shortened. Brakes off a 76 Chevy k20 (thanks NAPA parts catalog photos!)

I'll pull the rotor and check the hat offset. I think that's all I'll need to know. I hope!

Thanks for your help!

Its a 85 up Ford axle you can see the short side tube still has the factroy Spray weld on the C, cant see the other side C.
Calipers look like 76 Chevys 1/2 ton, rotors hard to tell, if you messure the depth of the hats that will help. Or just take one with you ( take the hole SRW hub if you want ) and match it up.

With the 76 calipers I use the 78/79 Ford rotors, they have shallowest depth on the rim, helps with deepoffset rims.

Pic of mine of a 78/79 Ford rotor on a Chevy 60 ( rear steer ) axle.



Dont worry to much about the year of the axle is, anything bought from the after market world for a Ford KP axle will work.
Rotors are the question, so just match them up at the parts store or post ( detailed ) Pics and we can ID them

Again. Amazed. Thanks.

One other question. This rig a trailer queen. It doesn't have locking hubs. Thoughts about dropping in a set, even if I don't anticipate driving it very far...

The best hubs to get are the 30 spline Spicers, ther every hard to find and are only again 30 spline. But they can broached to 35 spline. You more than likely have a set of drive flange's witch are super tuff but can be hard to drive on any type of pavement with a locker.

If your looking for set of Spicer hubs drop me a PM I have a few sets, Ford and Chevy used them only, Ford was on the 78/79 axle's and chevy used them from 78 threw 82ish when the phased them out and picked up the Warn design.

Im going to try to get around to pulling the hub this weekend. I don't know if the guy who built the axles converted the outers to 35 or not. The BOM is covered by the truss, so...

This is my first bigger rig, so the D60-70 is a whole different bird.

There where two options for a factory internal drive flange in 30 spline. Well the HD 70 fronts had 35 spline interanl flanges with the 35 spline stubs, but where talking about 60's, those super 70's are a whole other animal.

The 78/79 used them with the NP203 fulltime case and the Chevy used them in CUCV's unless its the CUCV with the PowerLock LSD front I belive the model number of the truck was a M1008.
That was the only tiem a the 30 spline interanl flanges was used. Dodge used a exteranl flange ( or the selctro exteranl hubs ) on all there 60 axle's till around 89ish, then they swapped to the Chevy style internal hubs and locking hubs.

Ive been dealling with these axle's for over 20 years and have taken hundreds maybe even thousands apart. Ask any questions, this is Jeep forum not Pirate
