    I need help from you guys. I'm looking to run my hummers with the original centers in them, and just run spacers to make up the difference in the rear, and HOPEFULLY find a set of Ford DRW 60 bearing hubs to take care of it on the front end.

    The question is... what size spacer do I need in the rear to get the proper WMS to WMS distance?

    Thanks for the help!

    Just out of curiousity, why do you wanna run the Ford bearing hubs? For the dual piston calipers?

    I may know where you can get the bearing hubs if you cant find any.

    Well... I've already got the Ford outers on my 60, and I really didn't want to spend the money to convert over to Chevy stuff. I figure that I'm going to 35 spline, so nothing should break then. *knocks on wood* Yes, I have the dual piston calipers on there too... and I kinda like them!

    If you can find a set of Ford DRW front hubs... tell me! I've got money in paypal RIGHT NOW for a set. Let me know what you find!

    Just an FYI comment...

    The Ford knucks are weaker, just talk to Matt (NoRulz) who broke 4(?) with stock Ford PS, no hydraulic, and no high steer. Also, the tire rod arms are shorter making it hard to build a heavy tie rod in the low steer position, 1.5" OD is the max and will hit the cover (as we found when I built Matts tie rod, we couldn't sleeve it up to 1.75" like mine). He finally switched to GM knucks (DaedenBear) on his Ford and he has since added hydro assist.

    Dan, dump the Ford crap and convert to GM.

    BTW, did you get a chance to pull that axle shaft setup out of your rig yet?

    ...and if you are going 35 spline the Chevy/Dodge knuckles, spindles, ect take them w/o mods. The Fords need mods to the stub shaft.
