rockyota83 are the 450/550 1550 stub shafts the same length as the 250/350 stub shafts?

Looks like you have some expensive paperweights...
Will the super 60 knuckle mount to the normal 05+ C?

I built my own caliper mounts. I've already looked into rebuilding them to keep them lined up on the rotor

Thanks for the measurement. Not your normal stub shaft since it splines directly into the unit bearing. And they will not be my paperweights....

The axles I got seat into the back of the UB, but the KPI is not through the middle of the ujoint. Its pushing the axle into the inside wall of the tube when turning. I am wondering if there is one that would give more room to center up the ujoint.

Has anyone ever added a spacer between the UB and knuckle? Would it be advisable?





It is not letting me attach photos, I keep getting the stupid security token error.

FORDTECHGURU Yes, works the same. The factory lockouts seem to hold up fairly well for trail rigs.

The factory module holds the solenoid on for around 8 seconds and then releases it. So, hold the button or rocker switch down for 8 seconds and your set..
Btw, our 05-up hi steer kits are the only kit in the indusrtry built to allow the vacuum hub locks to be retained if wanted, we machine an oring groove in the arm that seals to the knuckle port, drill and tap a hole and hook your vacuum hose back up and party on..
Does all this apply to the 05+ too? And are the vacuum hubs worth a crap? Be an easy selectable with a front spool.

I just measured an 06 F250 spindle, unit bearing is 4 on 6.5"(center to center diameter), bolt hole size is .595", and the bore size is 5.525".

Perfect. Thank you so much.
