GM used a Dana 60 rear axle in many 1965-1972 3/4 ton trucks.
QU42120U USED 16 Spline Dana 60 Loaded Open Differential Case for 4.10 and faster gear ratio Dana 60 axles in 1975 and older trucks.
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.
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.
TM4400 Pinion and Differential Bearing Service On Dana-Spicer Monobeam Axles covers step by step in text and photos the differential service procedures, specifications, and tools needed to replace differential and pinion bearings in Dana Spicer front or rear drive axles.
