later style hubs

anyone know if i could get by swapping my e99 to later 99 hubs by just getting new rotors, or what else it would take. I don't see why the e99 hubs should be so expensive, and was trying to find an alternative.

I don't know for sure, and need to find out... but what I understand is that the unit berring assembly, the rotor, and the caliper mounting bracket are diffrent. For me, it is an issue because I'm in the process of buying a e-99 F250, and have warrentee'd parts on my 2000, that it looks like won't interchange. Bummer.

Will someone who knows set things straight? Thanks in advance...

i didn't know about the bracket, but i did know about the rest. If the newer bearing would physically fit in the axle, I would think you could put the later brakes on to make it work. The 99-03's run the same front axle dont they? The e99 hubs at my local napa are 630 bucks each vs the 300 or so you can get the later style for, so I could spend money on brakes even though i don't need them. I also considered doing something like this, http://www.superduty-hq.com/99-04for...ersionkit.aspx

Thought I remember someone saying (posting) that you could use the brackets from one on the other, or/but you'd have to shim them with washers, if you wanted to do that... myself, i would prefer to swap out parts untill it all fit properly, no jake-y shims needed. (no offence to thoes named Jake LOL) Even if it ment parts yard trips, and everything from the knuckle out... I'm SURE that would work...

I swapped my e99 hubs to 99.5. All you need are the new hubs and rotors.
No shims, calipers or brackets. All that stays the same.

Thanks , Will

So, just to check...

If I remove my E99 unit berring/hub assembly, and rotor, and replace it with a later (as in 2000) style hub assembly and rotor, it should bolt up, and work no problems? Caliper spacing will be ok, I noticed that there is about 1/4" diffrence in the rotors when compairing mine about a week ago... had the left front hub off the red truck, and while doing so, compaired the rotor to an old one off my yellow dually. The diffrence is in the 'backspacing' for lack of a better term... as if the hub assembly is about 1/4' deeper on the later model trucks, pushing the lug nuts/wheel mounting surface out a little, keeping the rotor centered in the caliper?

Just "updated" mine a month or so ago and all you need is the unit bearing and rotor from the 99.5+. No other parts needed. Caliper will bolt up fine.

Good to know... I have a newer style unit berring brand new in the box under warrentee, and the old rotors I took off my dually, that are also newer style. Will need to get the rotors turned, but I should be able to get both sides swapped out to the newer style, at little cost... this is good...
