Well found some one selling exactly what im needing front and rear d60 axles out of a 2001 dodge ram. But the truck was rolled and I am wondering if they are worth buying or not after the truck has been rolled. Is there any thing I should look for?

Well the guy says there aint a straight panel on it any more so Im guessing it was rolled numerous times. So they got to be no good well I guess Ill keep searchin. I just want a set that will bolt right in so there aint any fab work involved.

crawl under and have a good look at them,axle tube should look straight from knuckle to knuckle (an imaginary line through the diff).The last set of axles I got was from a complete write off crew cab that went off a mountain road into a river below, nothing left of the truck but the axles were still straight. If you're paying more than a grand for the front end it better be in good shape. My 60 front is visibly bent from jumping and it still tracks straight on the street....been meaning to straighten it though.
