    I may be able to get ahold of a Dodge D60 w/4.56's. Will it work under the 'burb?

    I hear that the spring perches are 1" wider? Is this true? And if so what is a good solution to make it work?

    Edit: And the width... is the width good for the Chevy's?

    Yea they are a great fit. A few problems to help you out. The spring perch width is a non factor, its less that a half inch so 1/4" on each side [​IMG] . On mine I wanted the lugs to match, dont ask why but what I ended up doing was runnind a chevy K 30 rotor on the dodge hubs. This lets you have the 9/16th studs, but you have to run a chevy caliper. The difference in chevy and dodge calipers is internal, the dodge rotors are thin so the caliper wont open enough to accept a chevy rotor. Also dont try to use a chevy 3/4 ton rotor unless you drill out stud holes in the rotor, I pressed the big studs into then and broke the rotors. The brake lines are nothing. I just undid and threw away all the dodge stuff and hooked my lines up, by going to a chevy caliper the banjo bolt size is the same. The dodge axle tube curcumference is 10" which is 3.18" diameter so I had to use a set of u bolts from James that he got for a 10 bolt??? And last the stud holes are 9/16th instead of 5/8th so a stud kit from ORD wont work, also I took mine to a machine shop to get them redrilled and tapped but they didnt want to do it because of removing to much material so I am getting grade 9 bolts from DIY
