Re: Switching to a Solid Front Axle
i'm going to agree with these guys... i keep an eye on ebay and d50 axles do fetch as much as d60's, so why not get the good stuff? like shilo said, you dont want mismatched lug patterns because you cant rotate tires and must carry 2 spares, so get a 86-97 D60 and you'll be set [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
BTW, does anybody know if you can just swap in a newer SuperDuty front or rear axle in place of older 250/350 trucks? just wondering for swap compatibility... metric lugs are ok if you have them all around, and those rear axles came with some nice rear discs [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] (but dont the fronts have that crappy unit-bearing setup? that would suck)
