I agree. I picked up a D60 and Ford 10.25 out of an "87" F350 that were in great shape, but by the time I was done replacing bearings, seals, gaskets and all brake parts plus the $200 cost for the axles, I was in them for $1,000.00 each. That was with all my own labor. Again if you want to go as inexpensive as possible and your axles are in good shape, just upgrade the tranny. Easy and smart upgrade since it will be all apart. Good Luck.
