You can make anything fit....proper tools and fab skills.....but the real question... why? What is your reasoning /purpose for said mod? It's not just something you do, just to do.... there is much more involved with the 'entire package' with this type of mod.

Got a 86 f350 front in mine just needed brackets the rear is a Chevy but makes no difference. It's a good feeling knowing pretty much no matter what my axles won't break.

Ok cool the reason for this is it's cheaper the bying a Dana 60 and ya knowing that your never going to break an axial and I could run 40s

Yup I bought mine for like 650 and fully installed might have 1000 in them total. Do the rear disc swap if its drums. To build up the stock front is around 1k and it still has weaknesses you can't address with aftermarket parts. Check out ballistic fabrication for your brackets.

Someone was telling me that you have to have leaf springs is that true because I prefer my coil overs

No you can coil anything if you have the time and tools
Best thing would be find a front from 78-9 instead of the 80's model as all your brackets will fit alot better

Yup good point a lot of welding on the cast with the 80s d60 which can be difficult.

I did forget to mention that they are half again as much more than an 80's one though. A complete one will bring 1300-1500....one ready to run alot more
