Dana 70 or 80?

Was wondering how you tell the difference between the two and what internal differences are there between the two?

On the outside you can really see the difference in size between the two, the D80 is just massive compared to the D70. I just finished replacing my dad's D70 with a D80 and besides the size difference on the outside the axle shafts have a larger diameter and I am assuming the same on the inside since I have not had a chance to look into a D80 but I think that I will here very soon to replace to gear oil in it. Also I can post some pics of the two axles, the outside and insides, but it will not be until monday or tuesday when I have a camera to take the pics. Andrew

Thanks for the replies guys can't decide what to do on this would really like to get the limited slip in the 70 but don't want to sacrifice strength of the 80?:confused:

Thanks for the help guys proably be better suited to keep the 80.

Dave good idea maybe I'll call a few wrecking yards or check on E-Bay.

Nate my 80 is an open diff, and was pondering buying a d70 with a limited slip in it and same gear ratio.

Thanks,

Justin
