    It's not hard to find them, just hard to find a set for a reasonable price. Most of the ones I have seen were going for around $150-$200 per side.

    The SRW hubs are by far the most popular and not too many people are willing to part out a SRW front 60.

    How rare are Dana 60 SRW in a junkyard? Are those hubs something I could go pull myself? What all would I need to get?

    No it is a front axle thus the need for the hubs!

    I think you are confusing hubs with lockouts. Lockouts are the same for SRW and DRW applications.

    He is talking about the bearing hub. The part the rotor presses on to with the wheel studs. SRW and DRW front bearing hubs are different. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Perhaps in my ignorance I confused you all. I am confronted with the ability to buy a Dana 60 (front axle) unfortuantly I am told it is a DRW which means that backspacing will be a problem as well as the inability to unlock the hubs. I am also told I can correct this by installing the hubs (perhaps more) from an SRW Dana 60 which will allow me to unlock the hubs and will cure the backspacing problem. I apologies again for my apparent lack in wrenching knowlegde.

    DRW 60s can be unlocked just like any other 60. If it has lockouts on it already, which 99% of them do (very few that I have seen that are full time), then all you would have to do it switch your DRW bearing hubs for SRW bearing hubs. You might try seeing if someone that wants DRW hubs (for running Hummer rims) will trade for some SRW hubs.

    if u want to covert your front DRW 60 to the SRW style, just go over to pirate vendor forum and buy them. There is a guy selling em there brand new.
