LSD Options for Dana 60 Full Float 32 Spline?

After searching here and generally, I canít seem to find any limited slip options for the 32 spline Dana 60 full float. I do see an ARB locker, but I am more interested in an LSD.

Do you guys know of any options?

I am also wondering if getting 35 spline shafts is a straightforward process....pull
out the 32ís, slide in the 35ís and get any one of the many 35 spline LSD options.

Finally, does anybody know if you can get 35 spline shafts with the 8x170 pattern so I could run Superduty truck wheels?

Thanks a lot.

I think it would be easier and more cost effective to just remove that axle and put in a F250/F350 rear axle with whatever gears you want/ limited slip or E locker and then you can run the truck wheels.

1) Factory limited slip is available from Randy's.

2) x2 what Josh says. By the time to spend $900 on new axle shafts, then more for custom drilled hubs (full floats don't mount the wheel studs to the axle shaft), you'd be further ahead with an F-series axle.

Can you tell me how you went about setting up the 35 splines.

Thanks for all the input.

You can pull the axles and measure them. I then ordered custom length axles from Dutchman. Or, get the BOM# off the axle and use this to figure out what you've got. http://www2.dana.com/expertforms/deabill.aspx
Cross reference the # to parts listing. http://www.billavista.com/tech/pdf_i...%20Catalog.pdf

You can also get the axle code (in my case D422C) off the sticker in the door jamb and email Dana directly to see what you've got. techservice@dana.com

I sourced my D60 FF from a 2001 E350 van.

Napa sells 35-spline axles as well.

Not sure if itís available in 32 spline, but if you swap over to 35ís, take a look at the Eaton Truetrac, itís a helical gear vs. a clutch pack as in a LSD, just had one put in my new FF, so far so good.....

I thought I had something to add, but turns out, I didn't read very carefully :-)

The OP mentioned he had a FF so really all he need to do is swap the axles for 35 spline and add the LS of his choice. If it were me I would also go with the Truetrac which only comes in 30 or 35 spline. 30 spine as the recent threads by SierraHawk can attest are not up to the task.

As for converting to 8x170 why not just use a spacer like the one offered by Ujoint. 4x4 van conversion parts

Unless one needs the extra load rating of the Sterling it doesn't make sense to me to swap axles from a cost and hassle perspective.
