    Does anyone run a dualie front d60 without changing hubs? Can you change hubs to the single hubs? Is it even worth it, seems like if you got the right back space on your wheels it would work? its for a 82 K1500.

    If it dont work ill be building a 82 stepside dualie I think lol.

    Not sure if you meant this... BUt there is about an extra 4" on each side of the axle. Stock SRW width is 69.5"(wms-wms) and the duallies are 77"(maybe 77.5")...

    You can swap out the hubs and make your duallie D60 an SRW.... It's worht it if you need the narrower width...


    You could run stock(unmodded) H1 rim with the beadlocks and it will bring you overall width out to just about the edges of your fenders. THis is a nice option. However you then either have to run spacers in the rear or find a D70 duallies rear axle that is the wider version to bring the rear out close to front widths.

    yup what he said, i have seen a few guys who just use dullie rims with the dullie axle, sticks out a bit maybe bad for rocks and tight trails but it works none the less!

    well i just thought of something they dont make a 15" dualie wheel? so if i want to run my new tires I need to use 15s i think ill just buy it and store it till i get the hubs are the rotors the same??? or do i need those too im pretty sure the calipers are the same.

    The DRW rotors will work for an SRW application, the DRW holes can be drilled out to the SRW size. Check the "Dana 60 bible" tech article on Pirate for the drill bit size.

    FWIW, new SRW bearing hub & rotor assemlies can be purchased thru GMPartsDirect.com for about $240 shipped. If you go this route you can sell the DRW stuff and recover about half (sometimes more on Ebay) of the expense.

    should try and talk him down..500 doesnt sound too good after you consider new bearings, gears, and hubs and rotors....maybe around 300

    did you have them shipped? IF you bought them from gmpd..yes the hub and rotor are 114...shipping is now around 40.. ( thus the 300 a pair).they wont do walk in sales either I tried as I bought roughly 10 sets from them(had a trip that put me within 20 miles if them), now i go to the dealership :D .

    This is a DRW D60 and a DRW D70 w/ unmodified H1 wheels. Works perfectly.
