Hey ya'll so ive got a new project starting after christmas... its a 95 f250 and im going to be ditching the ttb and puttin in a dana 60 and just woundering what dana 60 would be best to go for....

a D60 from 92(i think thats when that model started) to 96 would be your best bet, or the earlier ones might work as well.

downside to the later balljoint style 1992 and up is that there is not a whole lot of aftermarket support for "high steer" so you would have to get the top of the outer knuckles machined to accept a high steering arm.

but this all depends on how much lift and your steering angles/setup

other than that any 80's or 90's dana 60 front diff will be good for that truck.

gonna have to cut the front engine crossmember to clear the axle, even on 44's its gotta be done

86 to 91 or 2 king pin after that ball joint. pretty much bolt right in. if ya do a lift theres no cutting necessary. I got a 4 inch on mine and went in with out a hitch

we saw that we would run into problems if we didnt trim it. i can put 48inches under my front tire maybe a little more the pumpkin as damn near close to the cross member

With any front 60 out of a 80+ F-350 you dont need to trim the front crossmember unless you plan on lengthening your wheel base. Those 60's have the pumpkin offset more towards the left front wheel to help clear that crossmember, If you had a Dana 60 out of an earlier truck you would have to trim the crossmember. Ive already done the research on this for doing the sas on my bronco, I've got a D60 out of a 90 F-350 for when I do my sas.
