dana 60 housing dodge

i foound a dodge dana 60 housing for 300 bucks by me. I been looking for a chevy 60 but they are too much are hard to find. Will a dodge 60 fit under my 87 chevy 3/4 ton. I remember a while back some one said you had to modify something. Also is 300 a ok deal considering its jsut a dodge housing. I want to build a 60 up slow dont have much money. please respond asap so i know to jump on this or not

<font color="green"> Short answer - yes it will fit.

Long answer - ask when you actually have the housing. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Medium answer - Yes, it fits, but you need some Chevy parts, such as a steering arm. No biggie if you're going to go crossover. The spring perch width is different, but can be made to fit with no apparant ill effects. </font color>

$300 for just a housing, no guts? seems steep to me, esp considering it's not a chebby housing. i dont know if you've looked into buying the guts but they ain't cheap, so factor it all in before you lay the loot down.

Make sure its a open knuckle front end and measure the spring pad width before sinking any money in it. I think the spring pad width is slightly different.
