Dana 30 ->ford 9" or Dana 44 Front Axle Swap
I have been doing some searches to try to find some answers on front end axle swaps. Currently I have a Dana 60 rear geared at 3.73's with a beefed up Dana 30 front axle. I have been wanting to get rid of the Dana 30 and move towards a Dana 44 or Ford 9 inch. It seems that the 9 inch swaps are not very popular front axle swaps? Why is this? I am seriously considering going with a 9 inch due to cost and ease of gear/pinion install. Plus its easy to make a 9" much stronger than a D44 can ever be. Will I have any problems using my 3.73 Geared D60 in the rear and a Ford 9" in front?
