Is that what its called with leaf springs.
My friend has a 1995 F250 with the dana 50 front that is in need of some maintanance work so he asked me if a solid axle dana 60 from the same vintage truck bolt in place of it.
I just looked at him and blinked twice.
Has anyone made this swap before?
My question is will it or whats involved?
My best suggestion to him was find a whole busted truck that would have all the parts that he needed and go from there.
Thanks.

just jerk everything out, bolt in the dana 60, only thing to fab up is the track bar mount. Custom is the one I would ask on this though.

Thanks everyone but, my fathead buddy decided that he didn't want to wait for the correct frontend and went out and bought everything to fix his.

well that sucks.....if it comes up again....yes a d60 will bolt directly in place....nothing is different for 1980-1997 on F-250, and F-250. YES! you will need a trac bar mount as it is front shackle and YES that axle will wander without a trac bar.....
