    what would it take for me to convert my dodge d60 to internal hubs? i would get hubs for it now, but the selectro price has me in shock (it has stock drive flanges). would it be more expensive to swap to GM pieces and use GM hubs? thanks

    As far as I know only certain Dodge versions of the 60 will be a direct hub replacement for GM internal hubs. It seems that some Dodge external hubs were a different length than the internal Dodge & GM internal hubs.
    I would think you would need to replace the spindle too if you have an odd ball length hub/spindle arrangement and check the stub axle shaft dimensions as well ( I remember changing to 35 spline stubs on a Dodge external spline hub and they were not the same length as the GM stuff ) .
    Other than what is said above it should be a bolt on swap .
    Good luck , Tom
