Chevy or a dodge axle?

I have already read the dana 60 bible, and know that I have a dana 60. I just need to know what to tell the parts house when I need replacement parts...

(1) The axle has 30 spline outers 35 spline inners.
(2) The axle has 2.75" Spring pads.... which makes it confusing since dodges have 2.5" and chevy's have 3".
(4) The axle is ~31" Spring pad to spring pad
(5) The spindle is held on with 6 nuts
(6) The axle is of course a passenger side drop
(7) The axle has no BOM numbers..... actually, no number on the long axle tube period
(8) The spindle nuts are 4 prong, not 6
(9) On the pumpkin there are d60 impressions and on the top right part of the pumpkin facing forward are the numbers C40386.


Please help

What is the wheel mounting surface measurement?

Dodge is 67" GM is 69".

IH also used an open knuckle D60 front for one year. 75 I think.

The axle is currently completely apart, is there any other way to tell? I need to order the new parts to re assemble it.

I hate I didn't measure it before I took it all apart.

Pretty sure the Dodge front D60 spring pads are 32.5" on center and the GM's are 32".
I was able track down the year of mine from the BOM number that was under a lot of paint, yours is there someplace I'm sure.
