Re: 1978 Dana 60 frontend compatibility with 96 F350.
I don't mean the downward angle of the driveshaft cuz just like you said, just rotate the axle up then weld the perches. The pumpkin is closer to the center on the 78/79 D60 so the driveshaft would also be angled inward toward the center of the truck putting a lot more stress on the u-joints.
They both go for about the same price, so sell the 78/79 D60 on eBay and buy an 80-98 D60 with the money from the older one. Someone looking for a 78/79 will get his, the guy selling the 80-98 will get his money and you'll get the axle you need. EVERYONE'S HAPPY!!! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
