Dana 60 Shave Kit
Gain 1" of ground clearance!
Includes a differential cover CNC laser cut and CNC Press formed from 3/8" steel plate and 5/8" thick billet bottom block, with a 1/2" thick bottom armor plate. Gain an additional 1 inch of ground clearance from stock (equivalent to gaining 2" on tire size). Bottom bolts are countersunk for extra bolt protection. Kit adds TWO additional bolt holes to the ring pattern to increase strength and resist leakage. For best fitment, machine the bottom of the housing. Ring gear does NOT need to be turned or machined! This is our lowest profile cover ever, so it will clear most steering tie rods. Includes weld on skull logo and hardware. Welded and Machined flat for a great fit. 
We also offer the option of having your axle housing machined and the shave kit installed and welded if all brackets are torched and cleaned off of axle (call to order).
Machining and Welding Your Housing - $250.00 - Call to Order
Complete instructions coming soon - But here's some pointers in the meantime :
  1. Machine or gind/cut housing to 3.200" from the tangent of the tube
  2. Pre-heat housing to 400 degrees ER70 or ER80 welding wire is recommended
  3.  Reinstall the ring gear, carrier and bearings.
  4.  Tack weld the bottom plate/cover assembly to the housing with ALL bolts installed.
  5. Check that the assembly is free of interference’s.
  6.  Remove the cover.
  7. Remove the ring gear, carrier and bearings.
  8. Pre-heat the housing/bottom plate with a rose bud torch until they are approximately 400 degrees. (Temperature marker can be used to indicate temp. You should not see a cherry color. If you do it is too hot.)
  9.  Weld the bottom plate from the outside first. Use a chipping hammer or a needle scaler (preferred) to relieve the weld and material while maintaining heat as best as possible. Do this until the entire area has been relieved.
  10. Re-heat if necessary and weld inside. Repeat needle scale and heat.
  11. Apply heat blanket and let cool as slowly as possible.

    This kit goes together just as easy as the bolt kit. Been beating mine for 3 years now with out a problem. I love hearing it glide over rocks. :}

    Dana 60 Shave Kit

    This shave kit was recommended by a friend. Very high quality fab. Excellent communication from Ballistic Fab after sale. Will be purchasing more from Ballistic!


    I received the shave kit in a timely manner, good packaging. I was not that impressed with the welds on the cover. I had 3 spots with quite a lot of porosity holes two of them I ground out and welded my self. I felt that it wouldn’t hold oil if I were to install it. I would recommend upping the quality control a bit but,I totally understand things slip by from time to time. If you have any questions feel free to contact me or would like pictures.
