The Currie® Built Dana 60 Rearend is a combination of Dana and Currie® components that are unique to Currie Enterprises. The original Dana 60 center section is equipped with 9" Ford-type housing ends and uses Currie's Performance axle shafts. This combination allows the largest selection of axle bearings and the widest variety of disc and drum brake options. The Dana 60's strong points are its reasonable cost, ease of assembly and the ability to carry and tow heavy loads. While the Dana 60 is strong, it weighs about 70 lbs more than a 9" and its ground clearance is about 1" less than a 9". The length of the pinion shaft on the Dana 60 is about 1.5" longer than a 9".
These heavy duty semi-float rearends are popular in trucks, utility vehicles and rock buggies. The Dana 60 is ideal for trucks with 36" or taller tires and performance applications where weight is not critical.
