    All you should need are the dually bearing hubs and bolts to attach the rotor. You might need new rotors since the stud holes in the rotor are smaller on a DRW axle.

    I converted mine from SRW to DRW but the bearing hubs I got had good rotors on them so I didn't have to deal with the stud hole issue.

    cool so it would appear to be simple and not "too" expensive to do. when i learned that premier or performance whatever wheel page i went to had given me a quote of $165 per 4" spacer for an 8 lug, i was like yeah :surepal: for a little more after buying them spacers and the shipping and all... yeah a D60 is right there close anyway. but in the event of me ending up with a srw version, i wanted to know the extent of pain i would be in for to get it to the drw specs. since i dislike having the D44 front under my dually forever :haha: for a while is ok but it must go some day when i get the d60 :)

    Just a disclaimer so People do not get further misled. I had started this post a while ago after learning the cost of adding spacers to my d44 8 lug front that is currently on my 84. A d60 is just a few bucks more than the spacers would cost. I had the ? of how easy it would be to swap over to a drw setup in the event I got a great deal on a d60 and it turned out to be a srw setup. I do not have a d60 currently. :( And it will be a good while till I can afford one. :(:(

    Oh I am patient alright :grin: I just didn't want people to get mad at me since they all seem to think I had a srw d60 and wanted to swap to a drw setup. :) I will be patient and find a nice d60 for the right price and see if I get a drw or a srw setup. But that will come at a much later time when I have the $$ Being broke, going through a divorce, and planning on building a house and garage this fall kinda put that type of thing on the back burner for a good while. Especially when the d44 8lug is under the truck now and will be no prob until I have the spare cash to put into it. It's not like I have a 20" lift and 49" IROK's under it and need the strength. I still have to get the brakes fixed and a tuneup done before it will even see the road. So... a d60 falls further down the priority list. :dunno: It will get done one of these days when the time's right. I also want to get a burb to work on for a family type vehicle (planning ahead for the future). So may end up w/o a d60 for a long time :grin: Is all good though. One day I would like to get a d60 & 400/205 combo plus misc parts to put in my dd (82 specs listed in sig) so that also can be 4x4. But once again back seat to everything. :haha: Most important thing is the garage so I can have a place to work on things. Being single soon I could even live in that till I get the house built :haha: So now that I'm far off topic and semi jacking my own thread. I do not have a d60 sorry guys. :( I really wish I did.
