The rear axle of the Avalanche has been a love-hate relationship since the start. With the long wheelbase we thought it was a good idea to give the truck rear steer, but we made the mistake of swapping a rear-steer Dana 60 into a 3/4-ton truck, and then added 39-inch rubber. All told, the rear ring-and-pinion has been changed at least three times because the truck is just too heavy. Rear Dana 60s are for Jeeps.
