    i have a DRW D60 out of an 80s K30. i was talking to a buddy & said it would cost almost 1K to convert over to manual hubs. right now it has some slugs on it, but would really like to convert to the manuals, so is my buddy right? or is there a less expensive way of making the hubs manual on the dually axle? thanks.

    Does it have a 203 X-fer case? I have never seen a K30 with one, but I don't know much about it either.

    Just converting from slugs to manual lockouts should cost you around $200. More if you need a part time kit for a 203, but still far less than $1,000.......

    Since you do not have the flange style they are the same as a SRW 60. I was just on Ebay and they had a couple of 35 spline hubs in some of the stores. Venture truck parts comes to mind. I think ORD can get them also.

    The locking hubs are exactly the same between a GM DRW and SRW Dana 60, so you can just swap them around. No special conversion kits or anything stupid like that is needed.

    Thats totally different.........If you buy the hubs it can get pricey fast. But I still don't know about 1k even for that.
