1997 Hubs Question

Hello, i recently aquired a dana 60 out of a f350. The assembly came out of a dual wheel truck. I plan on putting the assembly in my 97 f250. My question is whether or not there is a difference with the hubs or axles or do i just need to remove the dual wheel adapter? Is there anything else involved before i order ball joints and everything else. thank you

Innards will all the be the same. You can either machine down the existing DRW hub, or buy some SRW hubs. I'd do the second as the first can get sketchy...

not quite sure what it came off of but its 4x4 and its out of a 97 350 with a 460 motor. I figured i just needed hubs but wasnt sure if the other axles were longer or anything.

Axle's themselves will be the same length. Hubs are the only difference.

"The SRW and DRW front axles are identical EXCEPT for the wheel hub and rotor - same spindle, bearings, and lockout. The DRW wheel hub has a wheel mounting flange mounted on it about 4-5" from where the SRW wheel would mount. This makes the DRW axle 4-5" wider on each side. This was done to more closely match the width of the DRW rear axle, and to allow the DRW trucks to carry a single spare tire mounted on the largely dished "budd" style DRW wheel. Also, the rotor is bolted to the DRW hub with 8 9/16-NC bolts inboard of the wheel mounting flange, in the same position as the SRW hub, allowing the use of the same brakes on either (as opposed to the SRW hub which uses the wheel studs to pin the rotor and hub together). Because of this, the holes in the DRW rotor are smaller than in the SRW rotor, since the DRW rotor holes need only to clear the 9/16 bolts, as opposed to the SRW rotor holes which are larger to fit the knurled shoulder of the SRW wheel studs - other than that, the rotors are identical and DRW rotors can be used with SRW hubs if the 8 holes are drilled larger. The last difference is that between the DRW mounting surface and where the SRW mounting surface would be, the DRW hub 'bulges' - enough so that it will not fit through the center hole in the stock SRW wheel. Aftermarket wheels may not be an issue if they have larger center holes."

Copy and pasted that out of the link I posted earlier. Towards the bottom of the first page of information there is an entire section dedicated to DRW to SRW conversion.
