    Nope, the D60 is the same as a 10 bolt.

    If you have D44 calipers they will not fit, if you are using 10 bolt calipers they will fit. The banjo bolt sixe is the difference. Also when I swapped for a D60 I had to modify my 10 bolt hoses because the banjo block itself was too big to sit flat and seal properly.

    when i went 10 bolt to d60 with procomp stainless lines, I had to use the grinder just a lil tiny bit on the corners of the block to get it to fit, no big deal.

    When I swapped my 10 to a d60, I had to buy new lines. No joke, the 10's wouldn't fit no matter what I did. The 10blt lines were about an 1/8- 3/16" off center. I swear I'm not crazy... even left a fist size dent in the quarter panel, from fustration. And yes it was a 10bolt not a 44. I'm the only person I know that has had that problem.
