    Doing an axle swap soon and wanted to find out if a 15" rim will fit an Eaton axle, and if so what backspacing would I need to clear the drums? I don't have the cash for disks now or I would swap em out.

    No experience with this axle yet.

    Thanks.

    basicly the same brakes as a 14ff. i dont se a problem with the drum to rim spacing. i have a set of 4.25 bs 15x10 on a big 13" drum 14f now no problems.

    Thanks,

    It was probably a stupid question. I haven't ran 3/4 ton stuff on anything before, so I wanted to ask. Would really like to run 15" rims so that tires can be found easier and cheaper.

    Thanks again.
