    this question has been asked a million times, have you tried the search?

    take your hubs off & have them machined.It may be cheaper than new hubs,but could also be a bit weaker?

    I bought my Dually D60 for $900 shipped. Here's what I paid to get it to about what it is now:


    new Single Wheel hubs off e-bay: ~$370 shipped
    new spicer 35-spline outers from local shop: ~$140
    new Warn 35-locking hubs off e-bay: ~$195 shipped
    new wheel bearings and races and seals: ~$50

    So ~$755 extra will get you to a single wheel D60 with 35-spline stuff

    Nobody said D60's were cheap to build but there is a price for superior strength...


    Just an idea of what I have in my front axle alone:

    axle shipped : $900
    hubs: $370
    locking hubs: $195
    wheel bearings: $50
    inner and outer axles: $375
    detroit: $575
    install kit: $100
    Crane diff cover: $225
    ORD tie rod w/ TREs: $175
    ORD x-over drag link: $165
    Dropped pitman arm: $75
    ORD x-over steering arm: $150
    new rotors: $120
    new calipers and pads: $60
    hydro-assist: $325

    Total $3860



    lol..that more than I paid for the truck :blush:


    Oh well...at least I don't have to worry about my crap breaking for now :grin:
