Exclamation 1978 J10 rear Dana 60 antics

So I have likely stripped out the splines in my worn out dana 60 and dint really want to rebuild i after I have already sunk too much into this axle from hell. What other axles will swap under the truck in the rear and not need much modification? I appreciate any help as I am at my wits end with this axle.

If it's a J-10, it originally came with a D44. Another one of those would swap in place of the original. If you've put a J-20 D60 under it, then another one of those will swap in. Nothing else is going to be a direct swap. E350 van rear axles are pretty close in width, but the spring perches need to be moved. Anything you swap in other than the original axle will need brake and driveshaft tweaking.

You need to match the gears. After that consideration, most 3/4 ton eight Lug truck axles will work. Most are 65"-ish WMS-WMS and you'll likely need to move the spring perches and replace the pinion yoke. Note: Ebay has nice spring perchases cheap--dont try and save the old ones.
