    I've just bought a Dana 60 front axle for my blazer. The problem is it's for a dually. Does anyone know what I need to convert it to single wheel style??

    A machine shop. You can have the spacer machined and use a regular wheel when you are done (may have to change studs but not sure). Do a search here and at the Chevy board at <a target="_blank" href=http://www.off-road.com>www.off-road.com</a>. Some guys have done this and will tell you how to and/or do it for you.

    If you didn't build it yourself, how can you call it yours.......?

    I wonder if you could just swap the hub/rotor assembly off a regular D60. That might be cheaper than a machine shop. As long as the bolt pattern is the same, you could probably get it off any truck, even f*rd or d*dge. I would think the outers would be the same across all makes.

    Send a PM to Mike (screen name "blazen91").

    He has done at least one of these already and maybe more.

    See Ya,
