    What is the distance between the wheel mating surfaces on a K5's front axle? Is there a difference between this distance on a D44 vs. a 10 bolt? Thanks

    So, here's what we have for WMS to WMS spacing for the front 1/2 ton axles...

    GM Dana 44 Front (single wheel) ..............69"8-lug; 67" 6-lug

    GM 10 bolt front (single wheel) ..............69" 8"lug; 67" 6-lug

    The next question is: Is it the hub and rotor that makes the 8 lug WMS-WMS wider or is it the actual housing or something else that makes it wider?
