dana 60 axles

I have a set of dana 60 axles feom a 69-73 J20, 5/5, 35 spline, and 1 1/2 dia. I would like to use these axles some way. My problem is I don't have the housing for them. My question is this: Can I use these axles in any other housings. For example: what a about a dana 60 that had a 30 splin axle. I know that I have to cut them down to fit my CJ8, but I would like to use these for the 5/5 pattern and because [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] they are so big.

Re: dana 60 axles

thats quite a bit of custom work there, it would be really strong and the lug pattern that you need,

But it might be cheaper to buy new wheels and convert the front axle to a differnt pattern?!
JeepGod has one of those rear axles, check out his page and info about the semi float 35 spline 5/5 axle

Re: dana 60 axles

sorry I forgot to put in my question that this is for the rear axle. Cost is always on my mind. I got the axle so cheap that I was hoping to find a solution. Cutting the axles is no big problem and I would have replaced everything anyway.
