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".

info on Ford Super Duty Dana 60 axle

Iíve run XRF lower BJís in the upper slot of my last two 609ís. One had Dodge dually outers and the other is an 05 SD60 outer. Not sure how much meat is there for the 99-04 outer, to be cut for the mod. Itís a pretty easy thing to do.
Weíve got a jig, so itís an easy set up and cut. We also custom cut the cam shims for proper alignment. Iíve put a lot of punishing miles on both of the 609ís. The XRF lower BJís have never let me down/gotten loose.

If thereís room to do it, do it. The mod works well and is very dependable.

The taper is much larger, you would have to get custom cams made, I doubt there would be enough material to adjust more than .5 of a degree though.

Those are what I am buying when my balljoints wear out eventually. I liked being able to add an extra 2 degrees of caster using the upper cams, these are essential for dialing in a vehicle that sees a lot of road miles. Emf designed theirs much better than the dynatrac balljoints, which I believe are just a small uniball inside a housing.

Does anyone know exactly what needs to be done to run the lower ball joints in the upper position on the 99-04 knuckles. I know I have read about it but cant seem to find any info.

I think your on to something here. It looks like ujoint offroad has something like it....

IIRC; said F-550 axle shafts are HUGE.

Will I use the F-550's factory lockouts too?
Yes, stock manual or aftermarket manual or slugs are best, auto-lock might be an issue.

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?
Yes you can, but not worth the hassle. The 550 rear axle with matching lug pattern is not usefull based off of limited gearing and locker options. Lug pattern is smaller on the front UB without the adapter. If you use a sterling rear everything will be 8 on 170.

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.
I got my UB online for cheap, just have to search around. Or find a good used set.



THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT!

Thanks for the specs.
