Why do I hear people talking about doing this?
Are GM outters stronger? If I'm switching to GM I know that I'll need
knuckles, spindles, hubs,stubs, but what about brake caliper brackets?

You will need.

- Spindles
- Knuckles
- Locking Hubs or Drive Flanges
- Complete Hub Assemblys (with Rotors)
- Caliper Brackets
- Calipers (exchange your Ford ones @ Napa for Reman Ones)
- GM Outer Stub Shafts
- Spindle Nut Kits

I`m in the process of doing this on my Ford D60, Ihave all the parts just need to finish up!!

I've got a set of hubs, rotors, and 1 spindle that are 8 lug,
so I'm assuming that they are d60 but I guess they could
be 44... humm I think that I'll take a look at them tomorrow..
what's a set of used knuckles worth?

Nothing from a 44 interchanges to a 60, unless you have conversion caliper mounts.
It's hard to tell what you have, size perspective.
My Dodge hubs are external lock-out hubs and use 8 bolts for the L/Os.
Show a picture of the knuckle they mount to.


The bottom pic has a lock-out or drive slug to the right. If that's from your parts, it's a 44 using a 19 spline stub.

By using GM stuff from the knuckle out does this also increase the WMS of the axle since the GM stuff is ~.5" longer? Effectivly increaseing the width of the axle 1" total?

Yes, .600" per side, 1.200" total width.

Assuming the 19 spline drive flange in the lower right corner of the last two pics came off the hub you are showing, that is D44 stuff.



edit: I need to read all the responses before posting. :D I just repeated what JeepinDoug had already posted.
