D60 application question

Discussion in 'OffRoad Design' started by **DONOTDELETE**, Jul 14, 2002.

    Was kind of curious to the different applications. Are the hubs, rotors, and calipers different on Ford, Dodge, and Chevy Dana 60 fronts? I have a buddy wanting to put a HP D60 front into his 2002 Chevy HD, but wants to make sure all the brake lines ect..... will work.

    Dodge and GM are very similar, housings are different widths and use different inner axles but as far as I know most of the rest is the same. Fords are mostly different, they use a different knuckle, spindle, hub rotor, etc. Obviously housings are different too. I think you can swap the knuckle out between GM and Ford but you have to use the full knuckle out assembly.

    Then there's the balljoint ford D60 which is a whole different story too.

    I'd say if you want a HP LH front, use the ford as is and call it good. You'll just have to do what it takes to make brakelines and steering work.
  2. That is what I was thinking to do. It can't be too hard to get the brakelines made GM on one end and Ford on the other.
