AXLEs Are Out Of 1988 Chevy Single Wheel 1-Ton 4X4,Front Is DANA-60 King-Pin Axle,REAR Is A 14 Bolt Full-Float Axle,Both Axles Have 410 Gears.


The price is $1200.

2. Is this a good price?

3.What is required to put these under my girl?

1. YOu will be adding width and a fair amount of weight to your DD. Gas milage will be reduced.

2. Price seems pretty good compared to what I've seen. but consider this:
Are the brakes in good shape or need to be rebuilt? Are you re-gearing/lockers anyway?
3. 8-lug?? You'll need new wheels, you will be wider therfore depending on state you will need more wheel coverage. All chevy truck brackets cut off, All TJ brackets welded on. Driveshafts will need to be modified or replaced.
Passenger side drop or driver?

Hmm...sounds like a bit much work, for me.

I'm wanting to re-gear to 4.88.
I currently have 33s, but when the time comes, I'll be bumping up to 35s.

I'm just having a rough time deciding what to do with the axles in general...

Upgrade/ Super kits?
dana 44/ ford 8.8 rear swap?
Upgrade/ Super kits for those?
lockers???
Steering...

go ahead and decide how big of a tire you will ever want to run....then add two sizes to it, because almost everybody goes bigger. If you are looking at 37s and under, you can get a away with a pair of waggy axles(44s). For these axles to be efficient and worth your time and fabrication, you will want driverside drop front axle. Check out pirate4x4.com, but lurk for a while until you understand how the posting goes.

The 14 bolt is a monster. One of the best axles ever built don't get me wrong. But If you are thinking 35's well Good luck as it will drag every rock up the hill with you. Here is a 14 bolt on 33's that we had on just for mock up. You will get the point. Now then. Before the jokes start flying. For anyone that ever wondered what a spring over on 4" RC springs would look like. We did this just for fun. Funny huh? But back to the 14 bolt rear. You see how on 33's it is prob. 7" off the ground. Needs 38.5's or bigger. to not get hung up.

you can shave almost 1 1/2 of the pumpkins with out weakening it much...

these axles are the best around for the money, you can weld the spiders up and be ready to go since they come stock with 4.10 or 4.56's

If you are asking those questions, I doubt you are ready for it...

And if you are only running 35s, thats too much axle. As Toxic said, will be dragging everywhere...


For 35s, do a real 44 up front (not a TJ/rubi 44, this will also allow for you to go slightly bigger). A 44 will be fine, or an 8.8 for the rear. You can also add new shafts for the extra strength depending on your wheeling. Lockers again, if you want to wheel get em (shouldnt really be a questions). Depending on the front axle, you need to upgrade your steering and brakes...

my thoughts exactly.

a chevy D60 will be passenger side offset, so you will need a new t-case (like an Atlas or a D300) and it will need to be flipped to drop to the correct side. you'll also need new brackets welded on and lots of setup work to get the steering right. you'll also need to shave the pumpkin on that 14-bolt because anything less than 37's and its going to be dragging everything.

usually you will find 14-bolts in buggies and full sizes with 37+ tires.

if the chevy axle is passenger a dana 300 will work perfectly. Go with the driverside drop and you will save lots of time and money

Thanks for the advice.
I do read a lot, I'm just a little nervous because most of my mods have been cosmetic, and now i'm wanting to do so functional mods.
I'm still a little reluctant to drop used axles under my girl.

Would I be wrong in buying them new?

If you are going to buy new, I would look at Dana 44's or if you really feel you need them, you can get High Pinion 60's. The GM 14 bolt is a beast, but a HUGE and as mentioned above, a "low riding" pumpkin that will drag on every fly's tail on the trail.

Todd, I can not view the pictures. Can you try to fix the link? I'm very interested to see what 33s on a 14b look like. Thanks.

Not at all if you can afford them.
