3 of 6
The front axle is a low-pinion Dana 60 from a Chevy pickup. The long side of the axle was narrowed 3 inches to line up the cast spring pad on the centersection with the leaf springs on the M37 to center the axle without outboarding the springs. The axle is fitted with 4.88 gears, an ARB Air Locker, stock hubs, and 30-spline stub shafts. The M37 is steered with a crossover setup, placing the drag link above the National leaf springs.
