Front Dana 60 Axle

The front ball joint-equipped Dana 60 was regeared with 5.13s but still has an open differential at this time. The 8-inch Icon Vehicle Dynamics springs suspend the axle and a dropped pitman arm and track bar bracket keep the steering angles reasonable. Normally, we don’t like U-bolts facing down, but we’ll make an exception here considering they are nearly two feet off of the ground. A front locker is on the wish list for the Super Duty, but hydraulic-assist steering will come first. Kyle had to swap out a broken steering box in the morning just to join us on the trail for the day.
