anyone used the 95-97 spindles with dually hub adapters? havent gotten mine apart yet, but i imagine the factory 2nd gen dodge ID for the spacers/adapters are smaller than the OD of the ford lockout hubs.

Stock ram steering parts have the correct stud taper for the ford knuckles?

Yeah Dodge Dually ID is too small if I remember right, been a few years since I did mine. If you have access use all the Ford parts.

ID is too small for the dana 60 hubs, dana 44 ones fit through with little room to spare but not enough for 60's. You could always run ford OBS DRW hubs entirely or run SRW hubs with a aftermarket dually spacer as long as you know the center bore on the wheels you want to run (ford\gm\dodge etc)

really the biggest upgrade im going for with the knuckle swap is the brakes, the freewheeling hubs are more of a bonus lol

I kept the ford SRW hubs and had some hub and wheel centric spacers made.

It works fine, I want to say the ford dually hub made for too wide of front trak width?? not sure on that though you would need to do some measuring.

Spacers can be sourced from either motorsport tech out of reno NV or Fred at wheeladapter.com.

As mentioned you just need to decide wheels for their centerbore.

pretty much any aftermarket wheel im looking at is 130mm hub bore vs the ~121mm dodge or the ~124mm ford. i'll just be getting some hubcentric rings

If someone is interested I do have a set of drw hubs from a 96 f350 Dana 60. I have no use for them and on the hunt for 95-97 srw hubs.

I finally got my hub conversion done. I decided to use the oem for lock outs for now. The breaking is much better with the bigger pads, rotors, and calipers. I am definitely happy that I was able to locate this thread and the parts to do it. I will post pictures when I figure out how.

This may have already been covered but do the 99-04 ford outer knuckles fit to the 94- 99 dodge inner c's? I realise all the difference with unit bearing, brakes ect but I'm looking at upgrading to the reid heavy duty outer knuckle.

the 95-97 the rotor slide over the front of the wheel hub and is held on by the rim and lug nuts. If your hubs are from a truck with a GVWR under 8500LBS then the rotor mounts to the back side like the older one do.
Never seen a 95-97 Ford Dana 60 hub with slip on rotors. Just saying...

As mentioned, that won't work. My wife (79FordGirl) and I did a 1995 dually she posted about. We had the DRW Ford hub pilot turned down to 4.780" OD. That was by far the easiest and cheapest solution for us.
