    Hey there, new guy here.

    I’m working on a mud buggy that someone else half built and lost intrest and then I bought it. So I don’t know exactly what parts are from where or what.

    Im still learning about axle/rear end stuff so please bear with me, if I get anything wrong.

    I have (what I belive to be) a full floating Dana 60 axle with no axle shafts in it. That bolt on from the outside

    Can anybody help me figure out what I need to look at to order the shafts. As in, how to tell what splines I need and are they different for different years or if it was off a certain truck?

    Also what fluid should be in it?

    Thank you to anybody who takes the time to read.

    My suggestion would be to inspect the rear for a P/N tag or stamping.
    Might also open the Diff cover and see if you can locate any #’s from the diff.
    From there you can search for companies that supply components for your Dana.

    Hey, thanks for the reply.

    I have searched the outside all over and couldn’t find a single number.
    I opened the diff cover today and found some numbers on the ring gear. I have no clue what any of it means. Google didn’t help all that much.
    It says 9 24 74 Dana 30360A A3D7X 41-10

    All that a could find on google is that its a 4 10 gear ratio from the 41-10. The only other thing I could think of is maybe the first 3 numbers were a date. Any chance that any of those numbers tell me what spline shafts I need?

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    All I can suggest is to contact a shop / supplier who deal in Dana and give them the P/N’s you found.
    They may be able to cross match the splines required.
