I wouldn't do that unless it has big knuckles in the front.What outers do you have in front ?
Buy the same to put in the rear so you have the same parts everywhere.
I remember someone arguing a while back saying you would have to flip the housing upside-down or else it would spin backwards. Was just kidding around.Can’t tell if serious?
Budget is going to determine what you do.
Stick a bone stock SD60 in the rear with a welded diff and stock gear/shafts will cost very little.
At the other end of the spectrum is get the shaved 14B center re-tubed and put the SD60 outers on it and some 40 spline inner shafts with either 1550 40 spline/direct spline u joints shafts, or Big Bell RCVs.
I would not build a centered rear high pinion Dana 60 rear axle, because you'll still need at least custom inner shafts, and high pinion 60 rears don't have the best track record (no reason to spend the same amount of $ for something that isn't as strong)
Maybe, maybe not.Would a 1550 axled super duty 60 live in the rear of a buggy? I always thought high pinion in the rear was "weaker"
My buggy is powered by a GM 3.8 supercharged v6 and the dana 300 has 4:1 gears. I found this video on youtube and he was hammering on it pretty hard. I am not the WOT type and prefer to go slow if I can. I am not sure of the weight but it is light.
