    Not sure what the diff is, maybe cause the stub and spindle are longer, the wheel hub might be longer as well??

    The hub itself (the big cast iron piece that has the rotor pressed onto it by the lug studs) is different between Dodge, Chevy and Ford I think. Check this article to make sure http://pirate4x4.com/tech/billavista/60_front/index.html

    They aren't much different, IIRC. They're expensive, so why change them? It'll just change your width a little bit.

    The stub, spindle and bearing hub are all shorter on a Ford than Chevy or Dodge, roughly 5/8". The last few years of Dodge kingpin D60 (89-92?) are the same as a Chevy but, imo, too rare to waste time looking for.
