Dana 60 fitment?

Will a D60 front out of an 87 one ton pickup bolt right into an 87 3/4 ton Suburban with a 10 bolt. Is spring pad width the same? Sterring box location? etc....
I'm putting a plow on my Suburban and if it'll bolt right up, I'll throw my 60 in instead of selling it. I doubt the 10 bolt will hold up to plowing very well. Thanks.

Yes the dana 60 will bolt right in. you may need a new pitman arm because the 60 is bigger. also the bolt pattern for the wheels. will these fit your present wheels?

Re: Dana 60 fitment?

Gonna need to grab the front driveshaft off said '87 K30 as well, the 10B and D60 yokes are different sized, so you might as well grab the rest of the 1-ton equipment[img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]. I'm thinking the output flanges on the tcases are gonna be the same, don't see why not. Just curious does the 'burban have a 14FF or 14SF?

Re: Dana 60 fitment?

The Burb is a 3/4 ton so it already has 8 lug wheels. I have the whole K30 so pitman arm and driveshaft are no problem. The Burb has a SF 14 bolt. I can't weld worth a darn so I'm not going to put the FF in.
Thanks for the help guys.

You know that the 14FF will bolt up no problemo right? The spring pad widths and all that should be the same, as well as shock mounts. Just measure backing plate to backing plate, WMS to WMS, and center to center on spring pads. I'm almost sure it's a no welding swap. Besides I'm pretty sure any reputable machine shop can move anything you need pretty cheaply.

Re: Dana 60 fitment?

If your Burb is already 3/4 ton, then it will bolt in, and won't have to change nada. I did the same to my old 84 3/4 ton, and everything including the d/s bolted in. As for the 1 ton rear axle, it won't bolt in, they have a different pad width, can't remember if it's wider or narrower. A 14ff off any 3/4 ton will bolt up, shouldn't even have to change the joints.

Yeah, I was told the spring pad width is narrower on the one ton FF.

DOH! That's right.. but still, a local machine shop can relocate 'em cheaply, and if you ever wanna throw a Detroit in it, the 14FF one is cheaper than the 14SF one.
