    The hub is the only difference.

    And maybe the spring pad position but that is easy to fix right? /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I've got a Dodge housing w/Ferd outters... and nothing was moved for it to fit. A word on the Ferd outters: If you plan on using 15" rims, DON'T get them. The dual piston calipers cannot be ground down to fit inside the rim. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Just my .02! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    hubs can be the same other then the stud size
    moving the spring perches is not an easy task unless you are talking rear axle
