That 660 looks like a good product. I'll give it a try if it looks like there's too much wear on the parts for a solid fit.
I'd be looking for another axle because that one will let you down sooner or later. Dana 44?

Fighting a bad taper is just a losing battle. You should be able to find a decent used axle for not a lot of money.
