    does anyone know for sure if 2wd 1 ton spindles differ between dually and single wheel ? hopefully just the rotors are what differ between the two

    any ideas ?

    thanks for anything

    1-ton DRW and SRW spindles are the same. Calipers are the same. Only the rotors differ.

    My 1-ton suspension is still complete... I can't see any numbers - they must be behind the rotor.

    They should all be same...

    73-87 1-ton trucks
    88-91 1-ton crewcabs
    73-95 1-ton vans (heavy suspension)

    I got mine from an 89 2wd crewcab.

    After I dug off the crud.... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    335669 LH
    335670 RH

    If you're out digging around in the boneyards, they will have 1.5" thick rotors as opposed to 1.25" on a 3/4-ton.

    Only 1-ton rotors fit the 1-ton spindles - they can be SRW or DRW rotors. 3/4-ton rotors will not fit on there (if that's what you're getting at)

    The thin (1.25") 1-ton rotors are the same as 3/4-ton stuff. They won't fit on 1-ton spindles, and vice-versa.
