Default dana 60 strong enough

I have a 98 2500 v10 with a dana 70 im pretty sure the power lock is going bad needs new clutches. I get a real bad vibration when going around turns. When i jack the rear up and turn 1 wheel the other goes in same direction its almost like its locked up all the time. i found a dana 60 for 50$ would it hold up to the v10?

Back in the day a Dana 60 was stock from Mopar on all 426 Hemi vehicles. So strong yes. You should be fine unless you plan to haul real heavy loads. The Dana 60 was the rear end used for years in 3/4 ton & 1 ton trucks. My 88 Dodge D250 had a Dana 60.

Are you sure yours is a Dana 60? I thought the V-10s came with Dana 70s with an optional Dana 80 which is what is in my truck, according to the option list under the hood. Mine has the heavy duty suspension. In 99 Dodge did not offer a single rear wheel 3500 4x4. But you could order the 1 ton stuff as an option. Mine according to the stickers Dodge shows it to basically be a SRW 3500.

I have a Dana 80 Limited Slip in mine. Dana 60 in front. My option sheet shows the HD Sway Bars, Dana 80 LS, I noticed in the owner manual tonight that all 2500-3500 99 QC 4x4 V-10s have a trailer max weight of 13,000# CGVW of 19,000#. So it didn't say anything about Dana 70 or 80. So I'm not sure what Dodge did with these truck & if it matters if it has a V-10. My buddy has an 2000 2wd 3500 dual rear wheels I believe his spring set up is more than mine but his rear end is a Dana 80 with the same size sway bars. So I guess it is all up for debate.
All I know is my V-10 is a pulling strong. It rides & drives great. I just love it. It may very well be the last truck I ever buy. So far pretty much trouble free. But it only has 78,000 original miles & I bought it off the original owner cheap I think, $5500.

they used the dana 60 in the 2 wheel drive 3/4 tons with the v8's. Pulled one from a truck once. but if memory serves me right it's a semi floating axle and not the full floater that comes on the big trucks. the difference between the 70 and 80 axles on the dodges was the transmission. 70's went on automatics and 80's went on manual trucks. So far from every truck I have looked at from the 2nd gen this holds true.

My dad has a Dana 60 in his '70 Dart that's making 721 HP and 655 ft-lbs of torque and it stands up to launches letting go of the transbrake at 5500 RPM.... Mind you it's been built up a bit with better parts and now has a spool in it rather than a posi; but a Dana 60 would handle your V10 no problem.
