WTB Dana 60 Font

I know finding one that doesn't cost more than my truck isn't easy, that's why I'm putting this out to my NC gang if you come across one that is reasonable or have one you want to get rid of let me know...... Thanks
Edit: here's what I'm looking for:

'85.5-'97 F350 4x4 tie-rod
'85.5-'97 F350 4x4 track bar and track bar bracket
possibly the F350 4x4 front driveshaft (depending on your lift)
You're pitman arm will work on the F350 drag link, as well as you're brake lines. I believe the F250 springs will be fine on the "new" front end.

^^^ yep I saw the one out of the wrecked 97 but $900 is a bit out of my price range... I only paid $1000 for my truck (granted I bought it from a friend and got a great deal)... I'm just putting it out there hoping to come across another good deal

The king pin axles are stronger than the ball joint axles (steering-wise). Much more desirable...

That's a great deal on a Dana 60. You could even get both matching axles for less than most 60's sell for alone!

As I figured it's already been sold usually the ones that are reasonably priced don't last long....

There is a website, NC4x4.com, it has a wider base of off-road minded folks from Carolina there. They should be able to help you out. I'm not back in NC anymore, or I would be able to help you out more.

Thanks slash I'm a member of nc4x4.. Most folks there want an arm, leg and your first born... I'm hoping to run across one someone is selling that they don't think it's made of gold.. That's the purpose of this thread... More folks looking better chance.. Thanks again for the help...
