I have a chance to get a 95 front ford balljoint 60. I have no experience with a non kingpin 60. I currently run a hp44 front. Anybody running a balljoint 60 front? Got pictures of steering and such? I can get this axle for 400 bucks so sounds good I think

I run a balljoint D60 in the buggy, but it's a Tera60 with Tera knuckles.

Good buy for $250 if it's complete.

Hit us up if you need any advice on it. Either Richard or I are intimate enough now with the front 60s by now to assist.

The housing alone is worth far more than the 250 but complete that is an amazing deal.

What bolt pattern you going to choose to run?

Well I have a 9" rear and I really don't wanna change it out so probably 5x5.5" if possible. I am very slowly gonna build this up to throw it in later. I appreciate any help and I will surely hit either one of you up when I need it cause I am sure I will lol

I run a ball joint 60 in the front of my crew cab longbed f350. It has held up fine for the past 17 years in that 7000 pound truck. I don't see a problem with it in your xj!

buy some new hubs from somebody like Blackbird Customs or Solid or Parts Mike. You could also go the route of having your 8 luggers turned, milled, and redrilled for 5 lug.

FORD wheel hubs are different than CHEVY/DODGE....

SOLID wheel hubs fit the chevy stuff.

:doh: thats right, all the Solid stuff is chevy/dodge junk




Well, could get Solid hubs then just get Solid knuckles, arms, and spindles for a badass setup with big pimpin keyways and 6 bolts :greensmok

So the axle is officially mine!!!! Now what is the best way to convert the balljoint 60 to 5x5.5" to match my 9" ford??
Just call up Blackbird Customs and order a set of rotors and it'll come with new caliper brackets. You will probably need a new set of calipers too (check with Blackbird Customs but I think they want folks to use the Chevy 1/2 ton brakes).

That is the most affordable way to get 5x5.5 to match your rear.
