another rear axle stupid question

Postby dmg98dodgeram » Fri Feb 02, 2018 12:57 am

Will an 02 2500 dana 70 rear axle swap into my 98 dodge ram 1500? I read the FAQ that talks about this but only mentions (98 99 01) for the rear. Nothing about the 02 for the rear however it does mention up to the 02 for the front.. Thanks for the help y'all.

The 02 D70 is the same as 98+, it just has disc brakes instead of drums. No other changes. It will work great.

Thanks dj. I appreciate the info! While I'm working on a purchase for the dana 70 I have to ask. Since I'm going to do the 60/70 combo, when buying parts from you would I be shopping for the 1500 or 2500 since I'll have 2500 axles? :scratch:

You'll need parts that fit the 1500 frame but 2500 axles, so we'll just make them for your application. We offer a shackle flip that has the 1500 brackets but 2500 zero rates and U bolt flip, it's no big deal. Just let us know when you order. :tu:
