I have finally traded up a D60 to swap into my '97 F250!!!!! It is from a '96 F350 4x4 dually, and it has the extended hubs for the budd wheels. I took the extended hub assemblies off and tried to put the hub/rotor assembly from a '97 250 on the D60 spindle, and the inner wheel bearing will not fit on the spindle. So my question is, can I take the spindles from the 250 and put them on the D60, and use the hub/rotor assembly from the 250? I measured the length of the spindles and how much of the axle that sticks out of the end of the spindle, and they are the same. By my measurements, this should work. Has anyone tried this?
like nate said they are adapted to the d60 they are all the same u dont need to swap spindles since they are all the same

I got it. I cleaned the spindle of the D60 off real good and could see where it had been smacked with a hammer where the inner wheel bearing fits. Fixed that, and the whole hub/rotor assembly and wheel bearings from the 250 fit right on there. I'm still gonna remove the spindles on the D60 though to replace the axle joints, axle seals, spindle bearings..........I'm soooooo happy to finally be getting a D60 under this truck!!!!!
All you need to do is remove the spacer/stud extenders and it is the same as a single wheel. Dont need to switch anything.
It must not be the same as yours then. The inside of it houses the wheel bearings and the locking hubs. The rotor bolts to the back and the wheel studs are out on the end. Look at the pics in my D60 swap thread.
