    To run single wheels and a disc brake kit on my dana 70HD will I need to get single wheel hubs?

    no u don't have to, but if u did the srw hubs would make it about 3-4" wider.

    That is correct. Swapping to SRW hubs on the D70HD will only serve to widen the axle even more. The popular swap is to use hubs off a Corp 14Bolt. It will bring the WMS out to within an inch of the WMS on a DRW D60F.

    ?

    I happen to have a rear dana 60 sittin around with hubs and rotors. Any idea if they will work? on a D70HD. Only reason i'm asking is because I dont have the 70 yet.

    damn

    D70HD out of Chevy T-Tag box truck. I think it has a 4" tube??????

    D60 REar out of 79 F-250. I suppose that means it wont work?



    Saw some 14 bolt hubs on e-bay for like $30. I'll probly have to go that route.


    Reason for the wide axle is the huge lift. Wider track width will lower my center of gravity. DRW D60 Front/D70HD 14 bolt hubbed REar should do the trick?

    Thanks for the help.

    BRian
