Cool ford dana 60 front how to fit a 15 inch wheel

I have a 86 front hp dana 60 out of a f 350. I need to fit 15 inch wheels on it. I have read about grinding the calipers. What back spacing can I use and also is there a specific brand of steel wheels I need or are they all pretty close to the same? Please help I bought 39.5 x 15 boggers for my jeep yj, to good of deal to pass up.

first delete everything you said before you get ass-reamed, then check the d60 bible in the tech section. welcome to pirate, learn to search

No worries, contact Highhonda on on the board.

You will need 3/4 disk brakes and an adapter for everything to work.

a 3.5" bs wheel should fit over the stock calipers... although it has to be a reversed rim shell which sucks.

I have 15x10's with 4.5" back spacing over chevy d44 calipers. I hacked the chevy caliper bracket onto my ford d60 bracket. It works... it's nothing pretty, but I did it about 5 years ago when there were no custom brackets to buy.

Start grinding bitch. About 1/4" off the outside 2" of the caliper should about do it.

I checked the bible, but wanted to here about a few more different backspacing options and maybe what brand they used on wheels, it did not say anything about that in the bible. I would like to here a little more about the ford dana 60 than what was in the tech section also . Thanks, I dont mind grinding bitch, just want it to work.
