I got a 76 Highboy with a peice of [27] sh--t 44 front low pinion . im wondering wheathr to swap in a kingpin front 60 from a similar year or can i put in a newer 60:confused: . I ran into problems when i blew the 44 now i cant find a bolt in kingpin not shure what to do. If any body has a king pin pm me i pay cash[cheers] .

i thought the highboys all came with dana 60 front ends...i guess not but you can swap in an 80's solid front dana 60 axle from a f350 i have heard

Thanks Guys i decided to go with a newer balljoint front diff cause their easyr to rebuild vs a king pin. Plus their a little more easy to locate.
