View Full Version : Is there a 'bolt in' rear D60 for my NT Wag?

I would want to keep the narrow track. Any known swaps where I wouldn't have to weld the sping mounts?

narrowest D60 I can think of is 66" WMS for a SRW
EDIT: oh yeah, the drag pack chryco cars came with D6-2 rear ends. But they are kind of rare, but the right width.

A dodge D60 will fit on your springs, but it will not be a Narrow track anymore. AFAIK, stuka is right.
What about a Dana 60 from a SWR 1 ton van?

Really, they are that wide?
Oh well, Mike, was just a thought.

Actually that is what my 14 bolt measures and it is from a 3/4 ton Chevy Van. I am not quite awake nor has the Meds kicked in yet. :(

Thanks guys. Any recommendation on the least expensive way to go? (I will have to pay someone to do some welding.) I doubt I would go over 33" tires on this rig. Is a D60 overkill?

If you're not going over 33" tires a Dana 60 is overkill unless you're hauling a whole lot of junk with you with your foot on the floor and the diffs locked. 33s = save your money and don't worry about narrowing and moving perches on a Dana 60.

Mike, you know you can come down here next summer and weld anything you like.
You buy the materials and the shop is here.
Heck man, even Mtn Goat can teach you how, he is very good at this stuff after the last 2 summers.
