    that's not to hard you will need a hub socket but check what type of hub nuts you have 60's came with both 4 or 6 slot nuts/forums/images/icons/smile.gif you will also need a set of snap ring pliers.theres not much else to it. but if you plan on using yer old rotors you will have to remove them from the hubs, that is simple but can be a bitch if they are old and rusted. but thats nothing some PB blaster and an impacked wrench won't fix. but if you plan on using the dually rotors the stud hole will have to be reemed out to except the new SRW hub studs.

    Sent you a PM.

    BTW, it helps the parts guys at the stores if you take one of the spindle nuts with you to find the correct socket. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    theres not much of a diff. only on the DRW the rotors are bolted to the hub and on the SRW hub they use press in studs to hold it together. i'm using my DWR rotors and have to have the holes reemed out to except press in type studs.
