Default Ford HP D60 Front Axle

Has anyone done a writeup on installing this into their jeep? I have searched the forum, and the internet.. all I came up was the guy who put one in his CJ7 and changed the side of the diff. to passenger side...

I don't really need a 'step by step' but more of a I had to buy this that, and here's what it looks like [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

If anyone has pictures of a Ford HP d60 in front of their jeep that would be great too [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Thanks!

Todd, I haven't put a HP D60 in but did a Low pinion into my cj.

The first things that come to mind if you are planning on keeping it full width.

Brake lines, your old ones will probably be to short.

Springs, the stock locations are to narrow for the full width d60. they will need to be widened.

Drive shaft, you may get by with your old shaft but you will need a new yoke on the axle at the least.

Steering, this can be solved in a number of ways, hi steer with everything over the springs is popular. I went the behind the axle route also.

If you are planning on shortening the axle obviously that changes somethings.

I narrowed my chev. D60 4" on the long side. At full width it was 69". I believe the fords are 67-68" wide. Check that though.

On a cj narrowing the long side aligns the spring perch that is cast into the chunk, with the stock mounts.

I bought my behind the axle hi steer and hydraulics from Rockstomper. Check there site for pics.

Here is a link that has lots of steering info. http://billyxj.tripod.com/Index/Tech_Index.htm
