Ford Dana 60 Caliper Brackets 86-91 or 93?

Looking for a set of Ford Dana 60 caliper brackets for the 86-91 maybe a few years later too. I'm not exactly sure when Ford changed the knuckles.

Please give me a price shipped to 49460.

For the Caliper Bracket? The part the caliper is attached to?

Got a part number? I did a quick search for a 86 F350 and didn't find a caliper bracket in their menu under brake parts.

Different part. Thats for the two piece caliper. I have the later '86-9? one piece caliper.

I need these:

But after snooping around today I may take a different path:

https://shopspeedhouse.com/parts/spe...-dmax-kit.html

I have a message into them about wheel clearance. I already have a set of those calipers and rotors so if it will clear my 16" rims I'll probably go that route.

Ford integrated the caliper mount into the knuckle when they went to balljoints (91-92ish).

The 95-97 brakes are a better style and fit 16" wheels... but require a knuckle swap.

I'm running the kingpin knuckles with a lot of work on the steering done already. I'm committed. Just don't want to use the crappy H blocks on my already hillbilly engineering stock brackets.

Lugnut4x4 (and maybe a few others) make a chevy caliper bracket for the Ford kp60.

I too have some buggered kingpin caliper brackets.... and like being able to run 16" wheels.

One thought I had was to build a bracket similar to Torq's, but using 99-04 Superduty caliper & rotor (or similar one thats 1.5" thick). IIRC, I read somewhere drilling the SD rotors to 3/4" holes makes them fit on a 8x6.5" pattern hub.

Not that I need it, I think the brakes are fine with a 6600# rig and 40's, but I don't want to lose brake capacity. The Chevy single piston caliper is a downgrade.

The WFO/shopspeedhouse (not sure who makes them) brackets I listed above use the 2000 and later 2500HD duramax calipers and rotors which have slightly larger pistons than the stock Ford 60's before 91. And I have a set of 2500HD calipers and rotors, and....it's common with my tow rig.

I'm running H1 Alpha wheels so I need to turn down the hub pilot anyway and I need to swap the front to 14mm studs. Seems like a good time to get the brakes taken care of.

Nice - I initially thought it was for 17"+ wheels.

They claim it will fit 16" wheels with 4" backspacing. I'm running Hummer 16.5's and 17's so it shouldn't be a problem but they are checking for me.

I just got word back that it will clear 16's with 7" backspacing if the bleeder screw is relocated to the inside surface and the original hole plugged. He said it will be TIGHT with steel wheels. Probably not going to work with aluminum.

16.5's and 17's will clear fine according to the designer.
