    i have been looking for a set of GM D60 SRW hubs, and i cant find any for what i think is a reasonable price. i found a set of 78-79 F350 SRW hubs for a good price. will they work for my application?

    I don't know for sure on the 78/79 F-350 hubs but on the 85 on up stuff the hubs are shorter than GM stuff . I think that the machined part of the hub ( where the bearing races are ) is much closer together on the Ford hubs.

    It's a Dana axle, so that is a stupid arguement. That's like saying no new process transfer cases in your truck because ford/dodge/international also use them.

    agreed, a 205 is a 205, just swp in the heavier duty Chevy Input gear, and use the ford output gear..the best of both worlds.

    Dana is Dana and new process is new process, regardless of who they manufactured it for.
