Default Question on Axles

I am in the process of fixing my Ram.. It's a 1998 Ram 2500 w/ 5.9l Gas, 8800 GVW. I am about to rebuild the front end and have run across a description I need help with. The kit is for a Dana 60 4WD w/ 4500lb front axle.

How do I know what the rating for my axle, I asked the distributor and he recommended calling the dealership with the VIN.

I figured there was more info here. So I'm asking how do we tell what the axles are front and rear? Would be nice to know in the future.

Check the differential housing. On the little triangle tab going to the tubes there should be a casting.
