Back to article View Gallery
37 of 60
The Dana 60 front axle, pirated from an ’83 Chevy 3500 dualie, has welded spider gears, 4.56 gears, and stock manual hubs. The axle’s internals are spun by a homemade driveshaft with 1350 and 1330 U-joints. Simple is the name of the game for the front suspension. It uses 10-inch-lift leaf springs and a single Tuff Country shock at each wheel. The steering system is also a simple affair that uses a homemade hydraulic-assist system and includes an Offroad Design steering arm.
