Just wondering if you can run ford wheel hubs on chevy spindles. Right now I've got a cracked knuckle, broken stub shaft and trashed spindle, all ford parts. I'd like to upgrade to 35 spline outers and since all those parts are broken I figured I'd buy chevy knuckles, spindles and the 35 spline outer. Do I also need a chevy wheelhub? Thanks!

I think that the chevy stubs are too short for ford knuckles if I remember right.

I don't think you can use spicer 35 spline if you want to run a locking hub. You have to use a dirve flange.

Ford and Chevy knuckles are interchangeable as assembly's (knuckles out), but thier individual parts do not interchange.

The 35 spl. stubs can be modified to fit into Ford spindles, but they have to be cut down (Ford Hubs and spindles are shorter and use 5 bolts instead of 6 like the GM/Dodge)and groved for a snapring. Warn makes 35 spl. locking hubs.

Ok, thanks Patman, thats exactly what I needed to know. I assume I can bolt on the chevy knuckles, spindles and wheel hubs but use the ford rotor and caliper? Or do those not match up either?

Nope GM/Dodge Calipers and Rotors are completly different, and do not interchange with Ford.
