Dually un-converted

Just wondering if anyone could give me some info on the differences in front ends between 4wd single and dual wheel trucks. (05' 350)To change from one to the other does just the hub need replaced or the entire spindle assembley? Also are the outer axles the same or would they need replaced to? Is this even possible??

the front end on duallies tends to be wider, they are supposed to track in the middle of the rear duals. i have pics on another site of a 76 C30 Crew Cab Chevy that was deconverted. had the dually rear in it and the front tires stick out a lil wider than the rear

You have a Dana 80 rear set up for a dually so it might not be as wide in the rear if you only put one regular wheel on, I don't know.

The front will be wider but when I replace the axles under my jeep with a slight lift on it, I want the front to be wider then the back so it will track down the road better.

I know this probably doesn't help, but this was a free bump too
