1/2 ton dodge rams are 5 on 5.5 rotors. 13.5"ish diameter. Twin piston calipers that are bigger than JK too.

I can try to remember to take these pictures for you. I have an 09 housing sitting in the shop to compare against.

Who's got the best deal on the big hub seals inside the knuckles?
We have pretty good deals, but I need to get with admins to get vendor status. Trying to just provide tech and answers.

I don't recall there being a purpose. Just a casting change that they made. I guess it makes the knuckle lighter and uses less material?

That was my understanding, it was just an update to save weight and cost.
Casting is casting, it is not like the window is machined out and adds to the process.

Go back and edit your previous incorrect post also if you don’t mind.

Looks like a good option to get all new parts for a decent price and not have to mess with sourcing and cutting apart an old axle

They "Fit" when they are assembled...not when they look like they will fit. I will say that I think they probably will, but Its not done until it's done.

I measured everything. If they are correct, it may have .875 degree positive camber. My measurements could be off, but that is well within “factory tolerance”. They make 2.5degree cams and everywhere in between. The balljoint separation is the same.

I tried deleting it but it won’t let me. I’ll see if I can edit it this late.

13.05 - .55 = 12.5degree inclination....

The measurement with the ruler is from the top castle nut surface to lower castle nut surface

so can you summarize what's going on here in one post?

You ordered brand new inner C's? F350 or F550?
they work with Reid's new knuckles? I thought they were kingpin?
they work with stock 350 or 550 outer knuckles??

part number?

They are Spicer Ultimate 60 inner Cs. No one was sure if they would work with ‘05 F350 Superduty knuckles.
