    Just standing in my shop looking at my front DRW GM 60 and thinking " with a little work I
    could use those spacers on the back! They are built to take a beating,yes. They appear to be hubcentric (?),yes. There are cheaper than alu/or steel aftermarket spacers,yes. And will add 4.875 per side to match the front . Now tell me if it has been done ,or if it can't be done. Or if its just plain dumb! Has anybody ever seen a dually spacer break while offroading? Thanks Jeff

    the 60 frt is all one hub , the newer ifs stuff is bolt on style. and to make the rear line up with a single frt its 3" total for spacers 1.5 each.

    Hubs

    My 60 is from a 82 cab and chassis it has bolt on hub spacers . They bolt on from inside
    the rotors and they are 4.875 wide. I bet they could work on the back

    Thanks Jeff

    it is a 3" difference between srw and drw hubs. Not 4.875

    Hubs

    Sweet K30 I think you are correct , it was just an idea. I got my DRW 70 HD today and my next project will be to put SRW 14 bolt hubs on to get the 75-76" width.
