I just bought a 79 Ford that has the big hubs on the front.
Whats a sure way to tell if its a Dana 60 or what it is?
Whats it worth if I resold both rearends together?
I bought the truck for the deck.

hubs will be 4" across
60 will be stamped in the top of the housing
it will have king pins

The hubs are 4 inches across.

Whats it worth?

worth whatever you can get someone to pay.
look at the steering arm on the drivers knuckle, three bolts is a d44, four is a d60 if it is stock

Thanks for the link barracuda its starting to get a little clearer.
It doesnt help when half the people you ask dont know what they are talking about.

pretty sure last year of the highboys were 77,they had the divorced transfer case up to 1977 (1977.5) Rear leaf springs should be 2 1/4" wide, front leafs are 3" wide and the leaf packs should have about 3-4 inches of arch in them opposed to the 78/79 ones which were basically flat in the front...my buddy has a 77 highboy and i got 2 79's we've compared em so i know..

d60 will have kingpins, not balljoints. also has a 4" diameter hub and a 3.5" diameter axel tube.
