D60(srt10) swap pics

Alright guys and gals i will eventually make a complete how to on this one but for now i wanted to share the photos with you and give you the basic requirements i did this all in a one "CAR" garage on jackstands lol. Yes it is possible to do this, there is some things differently you must do but dont be intimidated. Since i have the mcgaughys 2/4 drop i had to shorten my driveshaft compliments of AUSTIN DRIVETRAIN (they do the best damn job), 1" which gave me enough space for dips and bumps to prevent a cracked tailhousing on the transmission and still be in a comfortable zone as far as yoke slip and output shaft go. The leafs bolt up under the axel so this works great for dropped trucks, if not im sure you could cut your stock perches and weld them ontop of this axel but that requires some more work. The D60 has a pinion yoke instead of a flange so the stock driveshaft flange has to go, and the u joint is different as well. I got what we call a Bastard joint with two bearing cap sizes one for our 1330 series drivelines and one for the 1350 SRT-10 series driveline you can get that part here http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Dana-...QQcmdZViewItem if not just search the 1330 to 1350 conversion joint. I went ahead and bought two new girdles and 4 bolts for them at dodge that hold the u joint onto the pinion yoke. The axel i bought came with brakes but if you need hemi brakes on them you can buy brackets to mount stock calipers onto the axel.If you have questions feel free to ask me, here are the pics.

Great pics. I am doing the swap in a few weeks so I look forward to your writeup. I completely rebuilt and detailed my axle while it it out. Also installed a set of 4:56's.

Actually yes the brakes did make a noticeable difference, you dont really pay attention to rear brakes but i immediately felt the difference, of course it could also be the new fluid, because you can plan on draining the system after you take those lines off. I bled the whole system and put in brand new fluid. I can definitely help you out with that install when you have questions, if you are "mechanically inclined" this should be easy, I started at 7:30 with a buddy with the wheels on the truck and had the new one on with wheels in about 2.5 hours, of course it wasnt driveable until i had my driveshaft reworked. I also plan on welding in a bracket for the Wheel hop Damper ontop of the diff and putting on the rear sway bar from an srt10.
