3. While the truck was being prepped, NorCal was also working on the new front axle. These AAM axles came from '03-and-newer Dodge 3/4- or 1-ton trucks. Most of the axle brackets will be cut off (front), but not before they are used to align the new Pure Performance link brackets (rear). The swap kit can also be used with a driver-side Dana 60 front axle, but the AAM axle has the same speed sensor and uses the same size U-joints as the 60. Although the AAM axles are only 33-spline, they are often found under the Cummins-powered 1-tons, and we feel they're comparable in strength to a Dana 60. Current market price on a used front AAM axle is between $1,000 and $2,500, similar to a complete 60.
