We stock a complete line of parts for the open knuckle, Dana-Spicer Model 60 Front Axle which was first used by Dodge in the 1 ton W300 and W350 4x4 trucks for the 1975 model year. The newly released Model 60 axle used the same size axle universal joint as the previous Model 70 closed knuckle axle, but the new open knuckle design had a sharper turning angle which substantially improved vehicle maneuverability.
The Model 60 as used by Dodge from 1975 to 1993 has very durable greaseable king pins and disc brakes. The wheel bearings are serviceable and the dead-spindle configuration allows the use of lockout hubs. The only major design change during the 18 year production run.....(continued below)
All 1984-1993 Dana 60 and 61 Front Axles in Dodge Ram trucks had a Bill of Material Number (BOM) stamped on a Build Tag (red arrow) attached to the differential by two of the differential cover bolts (yellow arrows) when the vehicle was shipped from the factory but, unfortunately, these tags are often missing on trucks that had prior differential service. 1977-1983 Axles will usually have the BOM number stamped on the front side of the right axle tube. The BOM number is a 6 digit number beginning with a 6 plus a dash number (ex: 610604-2). They can be used to determine not only the axle model, but also what components the axle was originally built with. We often ask for this number to insure we provide you with the exact parts you need for your truck.
Each different BOM number signifies an engineering part change which may be minor or major and may involve one or more parts. The dash number indicates the axle ratio and, for some years, the front wheel hub style (for single or dual rear wheel models).
Both Model 60 and 61 axles share almost all the same parts except for the axle housing and gear sets. The Model 60 was designed in an era of small engines requiring low gears to move the vehicle so the lowest numeric ratio it was designed for was 3.54:1. By the mid 1980's, fuel economy became paramount so lower numeric gears were needed to reduce the engine rpm, especially with non-overdrive transmissions and/or slow turning diesel engines. The Model 61 has the pinion center line set farther from the ring gear so a larger diameter pinion head can be accommodated. For Dodge front axles, the Model 61 was only available with 3.07 and 3.54 ratio gear sets. Depending on the year and engine, the Model 60 could be ordered with 3.54, 4.10, 4.56, 4.88, or 5.86 gearing.
Cover: 10 Bolt, 12" high
Ring Gear: 9-7/8", 12 Bolt
Suspension: Leaf spring
Steering Linkage: 1975-1993 uses a tie rod that attaches to each steering knuckle. Drag link goes from steering gear to cast iron arm bolted to the top of the drivers side steering knuckle.
Knuckle Mounting: Greaseable King Pins. Upper uses spring loaded plastic bushing rotating on a tapered King Pin. Lower has taper roller bearing.
Wheel Hub: Two types of wheel hubs were used by Dodge for Dana 60 and Dana 61 front axles. Early and mid production trucks used a wheel hub that took 8 bolt, externally mounted drive flanges or lockout hubs. Late production trucks used an internally splined wheel hub. Each hub type had a version for single rear wheel trucks and dual rear wheel trucks. There is conflicting documentation on the exact dates of the change over from external type hub mounting to internal, most likely due to the fact trucks were being manufactured in Canada, Mexico, and the United States at the same time and each plant probably made the switch when their inventory of axles with external type hubs was used up. According to Dodge parts books, all 1989 and prior models have the external mount hub. Dana however, lists both external and internal hubs for 1989. Our own experience has been that 1989 models all have external type hubs, but we believe there may be some late production 89's with the internal hub. For 1990 to 1991, Dodge lists both external and internal hubs. Dana lists only internal. We have seen a few 1990 models with external hubs, but most are internal. For 1991, most if not all, trucks should have internal hubs, but we did work on at least one 1991 dually with external hubs, so presumably there are more out there. 1992 and 1993 is easy, Dodge, Dana, and our experience, all agree these years will have internal hubs.
The 1975-1991 external, 8 bolt type wheel hub was factory equipped with either a splined steel drive flange or Selectro® lock out hubs with big cast aluminum selector knobs. 1990-1993 Internal spline wheel hubs had factory installed Warn® plastic dial lockout hubs.

TK42163 Spicer Nickel Chromoly High Performance 35 Spline Right or Left Inner Axle Shaft for Dana 60 Ram 150, 250, 350, and 1989-1993 Ram Pick-Up.
An Inner Axle Seal is pressed in the inboard end of each axle tube, right next to the differential side bearings. These seals contact the inner axle shafts to prevent gear oil from running out of the differential and down the axle tubes. Old age, blown axle u-joints, and/or grit that works it's way into the axle tubes and cuts the seal are the usual causes of failure. A bad Inner Axle Shaft Seal can be detected by oil coming out the end of the axle tubes next to the axle shaft u-joint. Usually when these Seals start to fail, they will seep oil so the leakage may go undetected for quite some time. Many a ring and pinion set has been burned up from axles that lost all their lube when long term seepage was not noticed. Axle disassembly including differential removal is required to replace the Seals.
We offer three different Universal Joints for your hard working Dodge Ram Truck. All are plenty strong for the job, but different manufacturing techniques and seal types will have a major influence on the ultimate life of the joint. Our most popular choice is our TK40715 cold-forged, non-greaseable, original equipment replacement U-Joint. The wear-resistant cold-forged cross and superior sealing make it the best choice for both low maintenance and long life. Greaseable TK40724 U-Joints are a greaseable version of our TK40715 joints, giving you the durability advantages of cold-forging and better seals with the option to re-lube the joint at any time for unmatched longevity. QU30332 's are hot-forged and equipped with simple rubber seals. With good maintenance and quality lubricant like our QU90018 Pyroplex® Plus Grease, these joints will last and last. See our individual product pages for more info.

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.
Torque King® Premium Diff Bearing and Seal Kits are the #1 choice for those who depend upon their truck to keep working day in and day out no matter how tough the conditions. Our Kits combine the superb quality of Timken bearings with the precise fit and reliability of 100% genuine Dana-Spicer small parts. No aftermarket, off brand or Chinese knockoff parts in these Kits!

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.
Dodge used 2 types of front Dana 60 wheel hubs on King Pin type Dana 60 or Dana 61 front axles with each type available for single rear wheel or dual rear wheel mounting flange offsets. From 1975 until around early 1991, the wheel hub is drilled and tapped with eight 3/8" USS bolt holes for mounting an external drive flange or Selectro locking hub. In 1991, these hubs were phased out in favor of a hub with internal splines for mounting a Warn plastic dial locking hub. The wheel bearings and seals are the same for all years and models. WE do stock some replacement parts for the factory Selectro and Warn lockout hubs, but by now many trucks have hade the factory original locking hubs replaced with cheap imported hubs. We do not stock nor sell ANY parts for imported aftermarket lockout hubs such as Superwinch or AVM!

We stock all the normal replacement parts for Dana 60 King Pin type Front Axles. 1975 to 1993 Dodge Dana 60 and Dana 61 front axles use greaseable and rebuildable King Pins instead of Ball Joints to mount the steering knuckles to the axle housing. Time has proven the Dana 60/Dana 61 King Pin design to be the most durable front axle steering components ever installed in Class 2 3/4 ton and Class 3 1 ton 4x4 trucks. Although at first glance the number of King Pin parts may appear daunting, the fact is these Dana King Pin front axle components are usually pretty easy to replace if they ever need service beyond regular greasing.
Dan the Gear Man® Product Note: Knowing how to do the job right the first time is half the battle. With our detailed, easy to read, and well illustrated technical publications, you get accurate service procedures, torque specifications, and tool recommendations.
Proper lubrication and replacing damaged or worn small parts is often the difference between a first class, long-term repair and a short lived nightmare. In this section are the small parts and accessory items that do not neatly fit under our other parts headings.
From 1975 through 1980, most Dodge Dana 60 front axles used pinion yokes for the small Spicer 1310 series universal joint, although you will find 7260 series joints in some 1975.5-1980 trucks. From 1981 through 1992, the even smaller Detroit 7260 u-joint was original equipment. Dodge finally saw the light and fitted almost all of 1993 model year trucks with the adequate sized Detroit 7290 series universal joint which was desperately needed with trucks powered by the Cummins Diesel engine.
Please refer to QK4653 page for more details and ordering information.
Unless your axle has run out of oil or it is severely abused, you will probably never have to replace your original ring and pinion set. However, if you do need one, we stock original equipment Dana-Spicer Gear Sets for your vintage Dodge Dana 60 or Dana 61 front axle. These genuine gear sets are not cheap when compared to the host of knock off Asian import gear sets being pushed into the market place by vendors focused on getting the cheapest stuff they can. Well, like anything, you get what you pay for. I have been setting up Dana Gear Sets since the mid 1970's to date, and I have never had a setup problem with a genuine Dana-Spicer Gear Set. The same is not true for the aftermarket parts. Besides having sloppy machining, most aftermarket gears are not made to use the Dana factory set up tools, so a person usually has to apply some blood-boiling "Kentucky Windage" to the setup procedure to make progress!
Sometimes, you just need one or two small parts to get back on the road. Between the small parts listed in this section and many others listed under part specific headings elsewhere on the page, we probably have that pesky little part you have to have but just can't find anywhere else.
Dan the Gear Man® Safety Note: Ring Gear Bolts are designed for a single use. They must be replaced after they are removed!
Dodge use the same QU40293D front spindle on all 1975 to 1993 4x4 trucks with the Model 60 or 61 open knuckle front drive axle. Spindle nuts are a different story. Dodge used a 2-9/16" hex nut with a bend over tab lock washer from 1975 to 1991. For 1992 and 1993, a round 4 slot nut double nut design was used. It is not uncommon to find the newer nuts set used on the older trucks or vice a versa. We used to see this a lot on fleet trucks where the nut styles were apparently changed for standardization reasons.
QU40293D Spindle Kit For all 1975-1993 Dodge W300 and W-350 4x4 trucks with Dana-Spicer Model 60 and Model 61 Front Axles. Also fits ALL 1989 to1993 Dodge Ram W-250 4x4 trucks with the Cummins Diesel engine.

Dan the Gear Man Tech Note: Dana has listed the QK4730 components as the correct replacement parts for Dodge Dana 60F axles equipped with hex nuts since the late 1970's. These are the parts we have used on customer trucks since that time. So if you need the entire nut set for your 1975-1991 4x4, and wish to save a few $$, order this Set instead of 2 QU11070 nuts and 1 QU40051 Washer, just remember the hex size is slightly smaller!

The dead spindle design of the 1975-1993 era Dodge Dana 60 series axles uses QU40149 needle bearing to support QU40330D outer axle shaft. To protect the bearing and control axial thrust, a 4 piece set consisting of QU40064 Slinger, QU40065 Large V-Seal, QU40148 Small V-Seal, and QU40066 Thrust Washer was used. We have both Kits and individual exact replacement Dana-Spicer Spindle small parts for your hard-working Dodge.

Dodge used the same wheel bearing and seal numbers for the entire 1975 to 1993 production run of Dana 60 and Dana 61 King Pin type front drive axles. However, spindle nut sets and lockout hubs will vary year. Wheel hubs will vary by both year and if the truck had single or dual rear wheels. For 1975 to 1989, all the trucks used QU11070 hex spindle nuts, QU40051 spindle lock washer, and externally mounted drive flanges or lockout hubs using QU50216 hub gasket. 1990 and 1991 were transition years. During 1990, the external mount type wheel hub was phased out by an internally splined wheel hub, but the hex spindle nut configuration was retained for 1990 and most of the 1991 production. You may find some later 1991s with QK4729 round spindle nut set. For 1992 and 1993, the change over was complete. All trucks would have internally splined wheel hubs and use the round, QK4729 4 slot spindle nut set.

(continued from above).....of this axle was a change in 1990-1991 from wheel hubs using externally mounted free wheel hubs (or drive flanges) to hubs with splined internal mount lockouts. Available factory gear sets over the years included 3.54, 4.10, 4.56, 4.88, and 5.86 ratio ring and pinions. Model 61 axles can be found in 1987 to 1993 model year trucks with 3.07 or 3.54 ratio gear sets. The model 61 is basically a modified Model 60 with a different ring gear offset to accommodate a larger diameter pinion gear. Except for the differential housing and some differential components, all the parts are interchangeable between the two models. You will find these fine axles in almost all Dodge 1 ton models from 1975 to 1993, plus all the 1989 to 1993 Cummins Diesel W250 and W350 4x4s. The only 1 ton exceptions are a few 1975 W300 trucks with the Model 70 closed knuckle axle, and a small number of mid 1980's trucks with wimpy Model 44 axles that Dodge badged as W-350 1 ton models. Dodge was the last vehicle manufacturer to offer a truck with a King Pin front 4x4 Model 60, discontinuing this axle at the end of the 1993 model year. The redesigned 1994 Dodge Model 60 uses ball joints instead of king pins and has a live-spindle, non-serviceable wheel hub.
