    When did they switch from the 8x6.5" to the 8x170mm?

    What year, or what axle????

    Oh the power is no joke, but being on a third turbo in less than 20,000 miles is :crazy:

    Yeah, they went to metric in '99, that's why I can't put my 39.5's on our 2004.

    you must be talking 6.0L. Friend of mine has gone through a turbo, injectors, injector cups, and a few other things. Really any other company would have replaced his motor by now... not Ford.

    I am glad I don't own something that gets recals even after it is 10 years old.

    [RANT/HIJACK]Yep, the first turbo that went blew 1,000 miles after I put a pyrometer in. I figured that somehow I'd overlooked a minute shaving (I pulled the manifold when I did it) and it ruined a bearing. Talked to the tech and it was so loaded with soot it would barely spin which was consistant with the low boost numbers I'd been seeing even under heavy load. Injectors, cam position sensor, reverse gear cluster (not really the PS's fault), egr valve, more injectors, a couple of new flashes and a new wiring harness later...the turbo went again but this time nobody is saying anything which I'm not even sure is legal. I pretty much called dibs on the truck when it came time to be sold but I wouldn't even consider a 6.0 anymore. Everybody raves that for every bad one you hear about there are a million good ones....we must just be that lucky.[/RANT]

    everyone I hear about has a bad one story so I'd say for every bad one there is 1/2 a good one.

    To the metric bolt pattern? In '99 they went to hub-centric assemblies on SD's. I think they switched the bolt pattern up to try and prevent people from running non hub-centric wheels on hub-centric assemblies.

    good point . but almost all rims have been hub centric for years. i do tires all day so i get to see lots of vehicles. now if this were true then why do all aftermarket rims come non hub centric? but thay do offer adaptor rings to do this if needed. i have found that the lugnuts will center it plenty good.

    as for ford doing this to make it so only non hub centric bolt on. i say this is why thay did it ( ford ) as the logo is thay circled the problem allready.:D

    yup, i found out the hard way ordering rims.i drove from detroit to 4wheelparts almost PENN.to avoid shipping and return charges.+ i have a v-10 no deisel here. :laugh: if chevy had a solid front axle i would have got one. :doah: STERLING drivetranes :rolleyes: but as far as a work truck that 350 carries 3800 to 4500 lbs all day barly squating it. :D
