ford d60 spindles, kp vrs bj

Ive been walking a buddy through building a bj ford d60. Hes at the point now that he is considering swaping it over to kp but he catching a bunch of mis leading and controdicting info

Hes being told that his bj spindles wont work on the kp knuckles because the spindle register isnt long enough to go through the brake braket and seat in the knuckle. Everything i can find says theat the bj and kp spindle is the same but i cant find that measurement, and its not in the bible



The seat/register/index shank from the back of his spindle is .825".
Spindle # 680086.

If you have a ford kp spindle handy please measure it.
If you have a ford kp brake caliper brkt could you measure the thickness where the spindle passes though please.

The only HP KP 60 I have is complete and holding up my JeeP .

I do have a set of front hubs with rotors laying outside, they are off of a 90s F250 with the TTB and if i'm not mistaken will also fit a KP 60 or a BJ 60 .

If that is true then the spindle has to be the same I would think .

Probably doesn't help any, but that's all I got

I believe king pin and 92-97 balljoint spindles are the same. Ttb spindles are different. But will bolt up. Pic below.

Thats what im finding but i dont have a lot of hands on with ford d60s.


Yukon and a few others only list 1 spindle from 77.5-97. My buddy is being told they had different stub shafts and a bunch of shit that wasnt jiving.

Looks like you can use ttb spindles on a bj knuckle cause there is only a short shank. Ttb def wont work on the kp stock -stock. But what is the shoulder on a kp spindle vrs a bj d60 spindle.

both kp and bj should use the same 5 stud spindle and stub shaft. only thing ive come across is the ttb spindle being shorter flange like posted above but have run them on my kp 60 with zero issues.

Only differences Iíve seen on ford stub shafts is some have snap ring groove some donít. Same length though.

Just speculation but is there a diameter difference in the wheel lug holes due to different sized lugs in the BJ axles
