strange 60 vs moser 60

i was gonna either get a moser 12 bolt with 33 spline axles, true trac posi, 1350 yoke, spring perches braced and TA alum girdle or a moser 35 spline dana 60 with true trac posi, spring perches braced. There both about $2700 shipped. I'm not much for the 9".

I found a brand new strange dana 60 locally for $2000. Has anybody had any issues with the strange dana 60's? Freddie said they use a different axle seal that can leak sometimes.

have you looked at dutchman, they are really close to you.
i dont know if they are any cheaper, but they are local and you would be able to stand at their counter to order and no big shipping costs.
ive heard some good stuff about them from some guys at work.

For what it's worth, I have Strange axles and bearings/seal in my 9" and have had zero problems.

I'm sure the Strange 60 would be a excellent piece.

Moser is great stuff also, but I'd save the $700 and go with the Strange 60 if it was exactly what I wanted.

Just my opinion.

If I may ask, what are you going to run this in? If you only need a 12bolt, a 60 is a bit overkill. The 60's weigh lot more than a 12 bolt or a 9". The 60s are VERY durable.

Any wheel that takes a 7/16" lig nut should take a 1/2" also, either by changing the lug nut(if they have a mag shank type nut) or by drilling the wheel hole oversize(if they use a tapered acorn type nut).

What is the wheel??

I have also used Dutchman axles with not a problem.

well it's going into my 580hp 81 camaro and yeah it's a little overkill but can't beat the price and it's bomb-proof. If i ever bump up the power, i won't have to worry about it. Its only about 25 more lbs than the 12 bolt but i heard that the more efficient gear in them almost make up for the weight difference.

Better to be overkill than too weak

All you need are 1/2" mag shank nuts, as the Cragar unilugs also fit Fords and Chryslers, and they both use 1/2" studs. It is basically the same nut, same OD on the shank to fit the hole in the wheel/washer but has a 1/16" larger hole drilled and tapped in it.

ok well i called dutchman and there complete dana 60 is like $2400. not sure if they charge extra to set up the differential, forgot to ask. But the strange is cheaper.

I'm not sure what to do about my brakes though because i want to reuse my 10 bolt brakes if i can. Does anybody know if i will be able to reuse them on the strange dana 60?
