    ok I'm looking for a front dana60 to go with my 14ff. But I've seen there are both SRW and DRW ones. I always thought srw-single rear wheel and drw was dually rear wheel. How can you have a dually front? or does it just mean it came from a dually? And which one should I go with for under a 77 k5?

    In a nutshell, a DRW front 60 just has a hub that extends out a little bit more than a SRW 60 would have. It's because of the rims that come on duallys. Nothing to do with dual front tires.. just denotes that the rear was dual... and therefore has different hubs up front. DRW is good if you want to run H1 hummer wheels. SRW for running something with a more common off-set.

    If you run standard offset wheels on a DRW frontend, you are not gonna like it. They will stick out A TON on the front.

    Cool beans... then you would be wanting to find a SRW D60. :thumb: If you only find a DRW that's no biggy either.. as more than likely you can find someone here willing to trade hubs. However if you can't find someone to trade with you, then it's a little pricey to get the hubs replaced. :(

    it's not like it used to be now you can get a pair for $300 or less.

    highhonda or on pirate4x4.com has great deals on hubs.

    I was actually looking at highonda's axles. Has anybody dealt with him. are his prices reasonable or should I keep looking in the junkyards and different boards?

    when i got my dana 60 it came with the dually hubs machined down to a srw mounting surface. I wouldn't recomend this if your going to drive the truck on the street though..

    Do you have any pics or additional info about this, since I´ve just found a dana60 dually front axle. I want to know how I can make it narrower like a standard axle..
