    Newb question, but is there a way to retain the stock bolt pattern? Or will that become a shear point if not beefed up with more lugs?

    Seems to be in really good condition. Very little to no rust on the housing and only light surface rust on most other parts. No signs of cracking on the knuckles from what I can tell. WELL worth the money.:D

    Now how the hell do I get it down from there? :anonymous:

    Hahaha. Looks good acp! Even just the housing alone, I had to get a buddy help me move the D60 out of my friends truck into storage :eek: These axles are no joke! Now you just need the 14 bolt and some SRW hubs for the 60 :D

    if your going to run portal boxs you will want lots of positive offset to help keep the portal box protected and combat scrub

    Hosed off the dirt and grease. Looking pretty good, IMO. Found the date and BOM. Nov. 1st 1977 and 610023-6

    Anyone know of a good source for SRW hubs/rotors? Or should I find someone to have the DRW hubs turned down?

    Just turn them down and true up where the wheel will mount. I've have found that web wheelers will say it's dangerous but there are no accounts of hub failures and I know of a few people running turned down drw hubs with no problems.

    On a side note, I now have leafs semi mounted. Still have to square stuff up and burn the tubes in, but it's alot closer now.

    Also a pic with weight on the spring, there's still a couple inches of uptravel in there. Might add another leaf to the pack to try to get a lil more out of it.
