Default Front & Rear axles

Gang, I found an 83 Ford Ambulance with Dana 70 HD dually axles. 4.10 ratio.
Dana 60 with the dually adapters. I have read some posts and am still a little fuzzy on whether these are bolt no’s to the 68’ M715. $300 a piece from the local salvage yard. Yeah or nay? Thanks guys

Go read the post on M715 zone...
Tons of info there.
The rear may bolt in. That front axle should be a spring over, so change’s will have to be made.

Just get a tape measure and start checking dimensions

I used a dodge D-60 in rear. Had to relocate the spring perches. Used an F350 D-60 front axle. Was close to bolt in but, it’s spring over so I flipped the rear shackles to make it sit level.

Shoot, my local yard have tons of those. I am very lucky, I have one of the best junk yards certainly in the Midwest 20 minutes from me. They have literally everything.

That's pretty cheap for a Dana 60 front. The front should be fairly close to bolt in if you do a spring over. Rear might need disc brake conversion depending on how wide it is.
