Question Which yr Dana 60 fits under our 7.3ls?

With my upcoming chassis mod (Full Traction coil over conversion) that Ill be installing under my 7.3l, does anyone know if the 05+ Dana 60's can be used on the 99-04 models? While I got the axle off and out from under the truck i'de like to upgrade to a beefier axle if I can find one that will work.

I know some of you are thinking "why not just buy a 99-04 dana 60" but I've looked and looked and looked but all I find are pre 99's and 05+'s for $1200-$1800 used but good condition.

My plan of attack is to install new balljoints, shaft ujoints, upgrade the brakes to the hawk setup, locker and a fresh coat of paint. While those are well within my price range I figured it was to good to be true with what I want to do.

Anyone know which year Dana 60 fronts will work?

Thanks fellas, and femallas

Casey

Shoot me a PM, If you are going to rebuild everything I can likely get you a 60 from a 350 delivered with about 100,000 miles on it for around a grand. Or even a lower mileage one for very little more. will also need to know hwat gearing you need if that's important. Most common is 3.73

But to answer your question for a direct bolt in application a front end from 02-04 is what you will want from either a 250 or 350. Do not use an Excursion though, thwy ALL had 50's. Of course in 05 they went to the Coil spring setup which can be done, and I have done, but it aint cheap. Plus the offset if different and the brakes are bigger, so you will have to have 17" wheels or bigger.
