    I know this question is probably stupid but I'm im just to lazy to use the search button to find an answer. I was wondering what it takes to convert a front dana 60 from a dually to a SRW style D60. I don't personally know any one who has done it. From what I see it looks like all that would need changing would be the hubs and possibly rotors. But someone told me you have to replace every piece from and including the knuckles out. thanks

    or have the outter tabs machined off your existing hubs.
    lots of people are willing to trade straight accross for dually hubs on here...

    Thanks for the help. I don't have a 60 yet. But all the 60's for sale around here are duallys so I will probably end up with one of those when get my lazy self in gear and go out and buy one. And I just wanted to know what had to be done.
