Its the spindles that need to be bigger to fit the 1.5in shafts, some people would use 14 bolt spindles grafted on and hubs, then use the 60 35 spline FF shafts, and redrill them(cant redrill a 14bolt shaft btw for 60 bolt pattern). 14 bolt cause they were prolly cheap and handy, no reason you shouldnt be to just bore the spindles unless your spindles are the thin type. Ive got a big bore and heavy duty 61FF empty housing if your interested.

Did you search ?

You won't know if they fit untill your measure you spindle ID. It need's to be 1.6 +/- .002.

As far as I know "and I don't know it all" there is no such "thin wall" spindle.

some people measured awhile back and were concerned that the spinde was too thin farther back towards the tube. Ill try to find that post and get back to you. It may only be on an older axle, but who knows.

thanks i appreciate the help, i'll see what i can find out, weather permitting.

i would have searched but the search engine is no longer offered to non-redstar members. i cant afford the redstar right now so i can not search on pirate. i would search on google but i figured i would ask this knowledgeable community. thanks guys, im still learning and and appreciate any input.

most likely:( the id of the tube should be in the neighborhood of 1.61" if not your new shafts ain't goin in.
