Would you go Dana 60 or Dana 60?
I plan to upgrade the front axle in my Excursion, as I will be getting rid of the Dana 50 when I go with 37's.
Option one: Bolt in 99-04 Super Duty Dana 60.
Pros: Complete bolt in, ABS stuff works
Cons: Ball joint knuckles, high steer expensive, unit bearings.
Option 2: 1986-91 Ford F-350 Dana 60
Pros: Near a bolt in, spring perch width same. Kingpin knuckles allow more highsteer options. More aftermarket support. Rebuildable hubs.
Cons: Steering may require some fab, wheel bolt pattern different, no ABS.
So, I really don't care about the ABS, but I want the wheel bolt pattern to match front and rear, which means redrilling one of the axles and rotors. Steering fab is not too big of an issue.
I have neither axle yet and am shopping. Which way would you go?
