The folks at Moser Engineering say that their new Dana 60 front axles are virtually indestructible because of the induction-hardened alloy steel and beefed-up area around the U-joint. The axles were designed for use with Spicer No. 5-332X U-joints and are available with inner and outer shafts. The inner shafts are available in 35-spline and the outer shafts can be purchased as either 30- or 35-spline shafts. Information: Moser Engineering, Dept.
