    Is it possible to run 3/4 to brakes on my dana 60, just got the 60 and both calipers are rusted out to piss. I have a 44 front 8 lug that used to be in it and was woundering if the caliper bracket will bolt up. Just tryin to save money. Thanks

    nope, some places make new brackets to do it though. Been a while since I priced the setup. Allows running of 15" rims without grinding too. You could probably buy 2 loaded calipers for what you'll pay for the conversion brackets.

    check out wms. they have a kit that allows you to run 15 inch wheels with their conversions.. i believe it comes with rotors, brackets, and calipers..check it out on their webpage..www.wagonermachine.com

    if I get the 3/4 ton bracket, then can I run the stock 60 rotors and hubs. The reason isnt so I can run 15 inch wheels its so I can save a little cash. I just checked and loaded calipers for both sides will be just over a hundred bucks. And if im not mistaken I'll have to jump up to a 1 ton MC aswell. So the brackets may still be cheaper aslong as I dont have to buy new rotors. Thanks
