Dodge 60 FRONT AXLE TRUSS FULL WIDTH & LOW PROFILE

Artec Industries is excite to announce the Dodge 60 Front Axle Truss. This heavy duty truss system is designed to take serious abuse and reinforce your entire axle while also providing a flat surface to mount your upper links. The 3/8" thick truss top and 1/4" thick gussets incorporates a unique design to strengthen both the axle and the link mounting surface.

Features include:

  • 3/8" thick mild steel truss top and 1/4" mild steel ram mount and gussets. Precision CNC cut and bent for great fitment.*
  • Truss is low profile allowing link joints to be mounted with ideal geometry - about 8 inches from the axle centerline.
  • Truss spans entire length of axle for complete reinforcement of the axle tubes - not just for mounting links.
  • Truss is reinforced using interlocked 1/4 thick gussets for maximum strength and easy assembly.
  • Overall low profile design means your axle is stronger, sleaker, easier to fit into any vehicle, and less likely to interfere with vehicle components.
MODEL NOTE: This truss is intended for Dodge 60 KINGPIN axles, not CAD (Center Axle Disconnect) balljoint axles or AAM 9.25 axles found on later model years.
NOTE: This kit requires general welding and fabrication skills. Welding should only be done by a competent welder. Artec Industries implies no guarantees or warranties and is not liable for improper installation.
*Some grinding and fitment may be required when installing this kit. Every axle varies slightly and some fabrication may be required.

Dodge and Chevy front 60s are very similar, and in many cases fairly interchangeable - both parts and entire assemblies. Differences do exist, and some are:

 

1) All Chevy 60s are kingpin knuckle, whereas early (79-93 ) Dodge are kingpin and later (94+ ) are balljoint (and undesirable)

 

2) All Chevy 60s are internal style lockout / drive flange bearing hubs, whereas early (79-89 ) Dodge are external, and later Dodge (90-93) are internal.

 

3) Dodge and Chevy outer kingpin knuckles are very similar, and either will bolt to the other axle, but they are not identical - tie-rod placement is different - the Dodge mounts the TRE about an inch and a half higher. Tie rod end taper is the same for all Chevy, Dodge up to 93, and 78-79 Ford. 85+ Ford is smaller to 99, then 2000+ Ford SuperDuty is larger and SupeDuty specific.

 

4) Chevy leaf spring pads are 3 inches wide and 32 inches apart (center-pin to center-pin), Dodge are 2.5 inches wide and 32.5 inches apart.

 

5) All SRW Chevy 60s are 69" wide wheel-mounting-surface to wheel-mounting-surface (wms-wms). Most SRW Dodge are 67" wide, although some are reportedly 69" wide too. A Dodge DRW 60 is 75.5" wms-wms.

 

6) Chevy rotors are 1.5" thick, early dodge rotors are 1.25" thick, but the calipers are identical. Dodge 60s from the CTD years (90-ish to 93) have 1.5" rotors.

 

7) Dodge 60s from the CTD years (90-ish to 93) have a higher tie rod location than the older Chevy.
