    thats it. any one have a good up close pice of a d44 3/4 ton knuckle. i finally took the tires off my new axel and its just doesnt look right to me. maybe this is my lack of experience just seems like the rotor has like 3 inches between where the studs are and the brake part. reminded me of a dually one. this truck was 72k20 non dually just fyi. thanks

    The hubs are different from a 1/2 to a 3/4. It will look like they stick way out there. I think there is 1 1/4" difference between the two.

    Heavy 4x4

    thats exactly what i have. it just suprised me b/c of the size and how big the hub was compared to my 1/2 drum front.

    Do i have to take the hub completely apart to change these rotoirs or can i leave all the guts inside it?

    thanks for the pic. i wish mine was that clean looking.

    Changing the rotors is a matter of pressing out the wheel studs, taking off the old rotor, and attaching the new rotor by pressing in the wheelstuds (I went with new ones). I took mine to the parts house where they pressed the wheelstuds out and in with a hydraulic press. I took them just the plain hubs with old rotors still attached - no wheel bearings or seals (althougth they still had the races in them) and the hubs were parts-washed (got all the dirt and grease out) before I got them back.

    Yup, after they pressed on the new rotors, they turned them too. (Got kinda expensive /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif)
