Default Ford Dana 60's Front HP Kingpin

I have a set of Dana 60's.
Front is the HP Kingpin Driver Drop
Rear is the stock rear from the same truck.
Not sure on gearing.
These are located in Oakland County Michigan, looking to get $1100 for the pair and will not seperate.

I dont know the year on these but I can get a bom off the pigs if you want. The front is a high pinion Kingpin... those pnly came on a few years as far as i know. Yes I picked these up in late October, decided to go with a different axle set up. If you want a BOM number let me know, there is a sale pending from pirate4x4 though.

There are two designs...

77.5-79
85.5-96

The earlier front axle is worth about $500 more than the later. The later one has a 4" wider spring perch setup and is worthless if you want to run big tahrs (40s will rub the leaf springs).

Actually the later model is THE one to get if your putting in coils or coilovers. You just narrow the long side 4.5 and you can run a stock shaft from another application in both sides. Also the pinion centerline is offset 2.5 inches farther towards the drivers side (the reason you only have to narrow the long side) so I would say it is FAR from worthless.

I'll have to see if I can rob the checking account. I've only got $800 set aside for another 60 right now.

See, I look at it differently. The pinion shaft is way over there so your driveshaft is way over there so it gets close to the frame and exhaust routing is interesting. Not to mention the further the driveshaft is over the more slip you need. There is nowhere to weld links on them and if you did your driveshaft would get in the way.

It's only the Jeep hosers that want to narrow an axle so they can continue to run their zero backspacing wheels so they can continue to have astronomical amounts of steering box tearing off scrub. Chances are if you're going to narrow the axle then you're going to run weenie tires anyway.

Ford went IFS on the 3/4 and 1 tons from 80-85, so either the guy you bought them from had the year wrong, or this was off some bruiser F450+ contraption (which usually weren't 4x4)

You are correct in that I'm talking Jeep use (narrowing). If leaving full width then yes, its not as good as the 78-79. But there are a lot of people putting them in jeeps and the offset is a huge plus. And there is still plenty of room for brackets and coils when you leave that side stock, I know I've built a few. Thus making it not exactly "worthless". Show me a jeep running a front 60 with weenie tires and zero backspacing rims. I would like to see that. I bet I could show you more bullshit fullsize turds running 40-44 inch ground hawgs on stock 10 bolts and 4 shocks per corner. Anyway, sorry for stealing your thread and have a Merry Cristmas. Tab

Holy shit. No, I bought the front axle 5 years ago. It's been sitting collecting rust since.
