1985 Dodge Axles...

I recently acquired a set (F&R) of axles, D44 front, D60FF rear. 3.73 gears with good joints. How much would I expect to pay for some lower gearing at least 5.__:1? I want to run 35s at least with my 4 banger toyota. Thanks in advance...

Re: 1985 Dodge Axles...

about the same as any axle... $200 for the gears, $75 for installation kit, and $200 for labor for each axle. since they're danas, you'll also need new carriers, which will run $50-75 per axle. so you're looking at about $1100-1200 total depending on how much the shop charges for labor and where you buy the parts.

I don't think you can get a 5:13 gear for a dana 44, I think I heard someone say that 4:56 was the biggest. Carriers??? open, limited slip or locker, big price differents... dana 60 lockers is $500

Re: 1985 Dodge Axles...

nah, randy's sells them all the way down to 5.86. is the dodge dana 44 a reverse cut or standard cut axle? ford's fronts are all reverse cut for added strength and i just assume dodge's is too? the prices for carriers are for open carriers, i assume you dont want lockers? those add quite a bit but of course they get you where you're going too [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: 1985 Dodge Axles...

Well I would probably do the install myself at school next year, so around 600 total? By chance anyone from Michigan here interested in buying these off me? We could talk prices later if anyone is interested. The rear spiders have been welded VERY good by the way. 600 is more than I plan on investing total on my truck when I'm done. I currently sit at around 25 including a bit of gas. 70 for my clutch, and some for Firetruck tires/ rims at ajunkyard... 300-400 is my total goal.
