GM Dana 60 Front Axle Simple Swap

GM Dana 60 Front Axle Simple Swap

We have gotten way too many calls for this one to not have it so here it is! This is just like our Rear Axle Simple Swaps with a few exceptions. First off, you only need 3 Ubolts, 1 of them needs to be 3 7/8". Secondly, the cast in place perch has a unique pattern so we give you the unique pattern Ubolt plate and the standard Ubolt plate for the tube side. Lastly, you only need 1 Spring Perch so you get that too. It comes with our Curved Shock Brackets rather than the shorter ones so that you can ride up the C better as well. The cost is a touch less than the rear Simple Swap kits because we save a perch and a Ubolt. Keep in mind the Cast Side Ubolt Plate is 1/2" thick to make up for the lack of bends plus the shock brackets cost a little more too. These also fit some Dodge D60 axles, call us when you are near your axle and we can check if it will fit yours.

It's a nice kit and everything fits great. One thing though, the threads on the u bolts fowl easy. Re-use is unlikely

I received my Dana 60 Simple swap kit and a Dana 60 diff cover together. The parts are top notch, as usual, and will look amazing on my K5. What I've come to respect most is when a company knows how to package and ship their product. Amazing care in packaging and strapping the box to ensure it made it through world war 3 (the parcel carrier). Everything is great and shipped fast! I'm a customer for life.

Questions and Answers

Ask a Question


jordon L. on -- Asked: how does the front axle parts mount on the axle, is there instructions to go by?

Answered: Hello, there are not instructions with the kit but you are welding your perch on at the pinion angle needed for your vehicle. You may need a shim for the cast perch in your center section to match the angle of the perch on the long side tube. This kit also comes with a spacer plate as some perches sit higher than others. Once perches are welded you can bolt up your leaf springs, articulate the axle and determine where your shock mounts need to be mounted
clayton W. on -- Asked: what is the rectangle piece for with the three holes? I wish there were a clearer picture of these components installed on a dana 60 under a cj. thanks.

Answered: That is a spacer. Our perches sit a bit higher than factory, so we include this spacer to keep it even with the casting side perch.
