Yep and eliminates the cost/headache of sourcing an inner axle seal solution which can be a pain.

Has anybody put the ruff stuff radius arm kit on to the factory control arm bushing mounts of the 05 and up d60 axle in their crawler? How well does it Flex with that kit? Seems like minimal labor and cost for a lot of strength.
Im considering this for a 90 bronco crawler build that will get street driven so on road manners need to be addressed so id rather not do a 3 link.

At least from personal experience, I would skip the motobilt as they do not machine them flat, both of mine came pretty warped and I had to put them on a big disc sander to get them to sit flat on the diffs. That's what I get for trying to save a few dollars. Ruff stuff, ballistic fab and great lake offroad all make superduty specific covers as well. Ballistic even makes a specific shave kit now as well.

Busted knuckle now has a brake kit that would work well for streetable and lightweight brakes. Price is very nice too.

Nice!!! It looks like they are using a rear rotor....so replacements should be easy to source.

I cant figure out what application the rotor from, since the one they are using a 1.25" thick one to work with the dynalite calipers. All the superduty rotors from 1999 on up that I could find are 1.5" thick.

Look at a REAR rotor. They are 1.18 thick, but I bet the .07 difference in thickness isn’t an issue.

The 1999-2003 rear rotors are 1.18" while the 2005-08 are 1.34", so I imagine they are using the early rotors. But that is a great option for the lighter rigs, I wonder if you could still run the stock size master TJ/XJ with the wilwoods? Instead of having to swap to a dodge master for volume.

i wonder why he hasnt addressed the the different years of caliper sizing on that link to the product description, im guessing his fits for 2005-2012? im sure fordguru knows the years they changed the caliper mounting on the knuckles

i know reids super kingpin knuckles take 2005-2012 calipers

The piston area of those calipers are less than the oem, so your pedal would still feel close to factory.

I talked to the owner on the phone, he wasn't aware that those 2013+ knuckles had the wider caliper spacing. He said he would correct the web page and will be getting a 2013+ knuckle in so he can make brackets for them.

ECGS did the same on my unit bearing 14 bolt rear, except he machined the tube for the seal

Does anyone have the CAD file for the 05+ unit bearings? I'm looking to use the 05" Super Duty Unit Bearings for an IFS setup.

can you describe this more...isnt ackerman good? im considering high steer kit, but also toying with a mild high steer in the stock holes.

Are the coil spring mount distances/measurement the same on an '06 F-550 as it is on an '06 F-350?

Unit wheel bearing & rotor swap may be all you need to do to convert it to SRW 8 lugs (or just unbolt the adapter to turn it into 10 lug SRW)

Will the bolts be long enough?

Are they the same lugs?

You will need 05+ F250/350 unit bearings and 2013+ F250 rotors with F550 calipers. The F550 calipers only clear 20” wheels though.

Fuck; that's a lot for this simpleton...

Dumb question:
Will said 05+ UB be big enough for the F-550's axle shafts to fit through?

IIRC; said F-550 axle shafts are HUGE.

Will I use the F-550's factory lockouts too?



Another option(?):
If I simply remove the DRW adapters and use 20" rims with a 10-on-225 lug pattern, will I be good to go then?


It looks like either way; I'll be spending about $1,400+ ($550 per custom rim, for example).

Unit bearing are almost that much too.



THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT!

Spend another $300 and get another donor axle from a pickup to rob the unit bearings from. Everything else should go together without much fuss.

Everything has been answered in the thread before.

Go back to page 1 and read, that how I did to figure it out.

Orrr, you buy another axle and you see what fits and what doesn't.
