Thumbs up can i put a front 44 hub in the place of a FF60 hub?

this will do two things...

give me a smaller bolt pattern not 8-lug

and will give me disc brakes.

can it be done?

Not without some MAJOR reconstructive surgery man. WTF? Disc brakes can be done, not sure exactly how but lot's of guys do it using Chevy parts from Junkyards and if you want a different bolt pattern, You'll have to go with a whole different outer setup using semi float axles. You'd need new shafts anyway. As far as I know, ya cant Full Float with less than 8 lugs.

So you're talking about throwing a 44 hub inside of a FF60 spindle?
First of all, most 44 hubs are 19 spline with some (or by aftermarket) are 30. Say, for whatever reason you manage to fit a hub in the spindle, do you want a D60 with 19 or 30 spline shafts? I would'nt. That's all I'm saying. Why go through the expense and time to build a 60 that will break like a 44?

I can't speak for what you saw in the rag, I have not even seen a 60 with locking hubs before. But I'm sure it can be done. Anything can be done... for a price. I'm just saying if you're gunna build a 60, build it right. Semi floating Dutchman shafts in 5 on 5.5's and your good.

Unless your planning on flat towing the rig everywhere, I dont see the need for locking hubs in the rear. If you are and want them, you got some work to do my friend.

Yes it is Possible to Make 5on 5 1/2 Pattern on full float stock hub assembly you just need A lath to Machine down the outer full float Bearing Hub wich has enough Meat to do this and re drill the 5 on 5 1/2 pattern in the Hub assembly My friend has Done 14 bolt's and Has had Great success with this he is able to run my old Champion beadlock's at 5on 5 1/2 pattern and stock wheel spacing no crazy offset's,,,,, 1/2 ton front Rotor, 1/2 chevy, Ford caliper and Modify Disc Brake Bracket to fit
