Actual difference's?, they are made by different manufacturers, share very little to no parts, and can be swapped with little to no adapting.

The "corporate 14" was a GM only axle and only found in Chevrolet & GMC trucks, and contained a ring gear measuring 10.5 inches, these were full floater axles with the axleshafts bolted to the hubs. The Corporate 14 bolt came in only a couple different widths, came with disc brakes from the factory in the "P" series step vans back in the 70's & 80's or 2 or 3 different drum brake sizes depending on what they were intended to be used in, then GM mixed everything up in the early 80's and designed a semi floater using C-clip retained axleshafts, and containing a 9.5 inch ring gear. In the early 90's GM then redesigned the 10.5 inch full floater 14-bolt, none of these three different axles will utilize parts from the others from what I have seen.

The Dana 60 is just that, a Dana, and could be found in GM, Dodge, International, Jeep, Ford, and probably a few others too.
These came in several widths, and mounting styles depending on what they originally came in.
