My '87 Caddi has a 5.0L 307 Olds or Buick motor..FWIW. If that is the original Caddi motor he is using.

The dana 60 rear is a one ton axle correct??

seems 3/4 ton would be a more accurate description, but when it comes to trars and trailers and mudbogging who is counting?

Dana 60 rear is either a 3/4 ton or 1 ton.

A 60 front makes it a 1 ton

Mine is an '87, but its still carb, don't know if the last few years are TBI or still carb. I'll search the Cadillac Owners forum.

Okay if its 1991-92 then its a 5.0L 305ci, thats when they switched from the 307ci. But it sill list the 305ci as carb'ed...and the 350's of that era as efi.
