    I know the 14bolt C&C is narrower, can I put the DRW hubs on a std 14bff from a 3/4ton (I have one thats already shaved and the perches are int he right place, plus the C&C is to narrow).

    Anyone done this? Pics? Widths? About the same as a DRW front D60?

    IIRC the hubs are the same, the housing itself is different.

    apparently not, the hubs are different. according to the illustrations, installing your C&C hubs on a SRW axle would just make it into a C&C axle, now with 1/2 and 3/4 ton spring spacing.

    Well, yes, but.

    The hubs will fit; they are identical to the wide dually hubs. The only difference between dually and SRW hubs is that the WMS is in 2" on each side.

    HOWEVER ... this means the drums won't fit, unless you move the backing plates by cutting the flanges and re-welding them :(

    might be best to talk to Tyler from Ill (cant recall his logon, BlueBlazer6.2 comes to mind), he's got my old C&C axle, and had some plans for it.
