dana 60 swap problems, help.

Well I'm back to the obs world, and glad to be. Just picked up a new to me 1996 powerstroke 4x4 and had this old late 80s f350 4x dump truck laying around at the shop with a blown 6.9, I decided to yank the axle out of it before it went to scrap because I knew if I didn't use it someone else could, my question for you guys is, the dump truck was a factory 4x DUALLY. And my trucks not, what do I need to make it not a dually, or can I just unbolt the spacers? Can the ttb hubs and **** work on the dna 60? Let me know. Thanks

The ttb hubs will go rite on there, the brake rotors you will need to keep however, btw pm me on those hubs I'm debating between an obs axle or an 05, and rite now the cost off set isn't working for a pair of new ones if you want to sell those dually hubs that is,


Your going to have to grind the tab on your brake lines to be able to bolt them to those calipers btw

Your 96 has bolt on brake calipers and the older f350 calipers use a sliding pin to hold them on and they are not interchangeable. The hubs, and locking hubs from the ttb will fit the d60 but the spindles from the ttb50 are different than the d60 so don't use them. The older discs where smaller in diameter and thicker than the 95-97 discs. You can get new front brake hoses from Napa for about $13 ea for a 94 f350 and they will fit either caliper.

Okay great, thanks for the input, on the dually axle it looks like the dually spacer is bolted to the disk, Actually it is. Do I need to buy new disks for a non dually or can unbolt them and use them?

You can unbolt and use them, no real difference between a dually brake and srw brake, but just remember when ever you buy rotors you will need to buy them for the axle year and not the truck year from now on
