New And Old Hubs And Brakes

Another big decision to make is wheel bolt pattern. Sometimes it’s easier and cheaper to buy new eight-lug wheels. Call us purists, but we like the 5-on-5 1/2 pattern. Besides, the cost of new beadlocks and converting our rear axle to eight-lug worked out to be roughly the same as converting the bolt pattern with the Dynatrac’s Pro 60 Hub Conversion Kit. For a ball joint Ford Dana 60, the Pro 60 Hub Kit includes new steering knuckles, calipers, caliper stands, wheel hubs, rotors, spindles, wheel bearings, ball joints, and normally outer axleshafts. As a bonus, we would have replaced some of this stuff anyway (calipers, ball joints, and bearings) as part of the rebuild.
