Parts for 1972-1979 Dana-Spicer Model 60 Rear Axles in Dodge Trucks

The 1970's was a time of transition for Dodge pickups. Besides the obvious body style change in 1972, rear axle options became more standardized making parts identification a bit simpler, for the later model years. We stock many of the common parts for these axles and perhaps a few of the less common, but our stock of major components is pretty much used up.

Differential and Pinion Bearings, Individual

top_page
product note
Over the years, Dana has primarily used Timken bearings when building their axles. For long life and dimensional consistency, Timken bearings are unmatched by any other brand of bearing I have used rebuilding axles over the past 30+ years in the business. When you are a shade tree mechanic dealing with a diff and pinion rebearing job without all the fancy gauging tools we have, you always want your new bearings to be the same overall thickness as the original bearings were when the axle was built so your pinion depth, pinion preload and backlash are within the tolerance limits when you are done with the job. Timken bearings will almost always deliver that type of accuracy, plus the steel quality and surface finish is the world's best

Differential Parts

product note
Differential problems with Dana 60 rear axles are not all that common. But Murphy, of Murphy's Law* really likes busted differentials, so when you hear that loud, heart-stopping, ominous BANG from the rear axle as your truck lurches to a grinding stop, you just KNOW it is one big dose of bad news. To help get you back on the road after you get rescued, we stock genuine original equipment Dana-Spicer Front Axle Differential Parts for your hard working Dodge truck.

Gaskets

top_page
product note
In the mid 1970's Dana made a differential cover design change to heavy gauge covers with flat mating flanges. Unlike the previous, thin gauge covers with embossed flanges which were made for use with a cut gasket, the new design, thick gauge covers are designed for sealing with RTV. If you desire, you can still use a gasket with the new type cover by combining the gasket with thin films of RTV. We stock both Ultra Gray RTV Sealant and genuine Dana Gaskets
