Re: Ford HP D60 Front Axle
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.
