D60 Full Float Rear Axle Flanges!

Something new for us at Ruffstuff! I tried to buy these from another vender but he wanted more than what I am willing to sell these for so we had to make them ourselves and improve them along the way



These are unique in that they will both work for Chevy or Ford D60 front spindles. The Ford will have a small spacer but that isn't ready yet. They are also made to clear the biggest of calipers.

So far we only make these with a 3.5" opening but the 3.25" are on the way!

The way we made them less expensive is all in the machinists' methods and these were made for us by Kyle at NWF. Kyle has a pretty good idea of the best ways to do things. The end result is what counts but the way you get there is what you end up paying for.

With these you can easily use a 35 spline shaft on the rear using common D60 front axle parts. I see these as a great way to use a 9", Sixty9, Solid14, or Torq rear third member and minimize your spare parts needs by using what you already use on the front axle.

These are made from 44W 1" Plate and machined for a press fit. They are $160 a pair for as long as we can afford it but we have 40 pair on the shelf as of today

We put another set on last night, this time I got some pics

Inside...


Outside...


And with the spindle and hub...


The truss is not welded for the last 3 inches so the brake brackets can be fitted up, Brian should have done them first but its going into his new car and you know how people want to see progress

These can really go on just about any axle, think about losing the snap rings on an 8.8 axle!

The spindels on my rear 60 out of an f250 are scored and I'm thinking of going this route. Are the smaller diameter flanges ready yet? Can I ask which hub is being used on the mock up in the pics?

Gray 99 Laredo with '04 driveline wap. Tons of fun coming soon. Steel bumpers. 5 1/2" IRO coils, IRO adj. track bar. Rancho RS9000 Addco rear sway. 2"x.250" DOM long arms with johny joints. Custom A-arm with ball joint delete (J-joint). JK Moab wheels/ 33x 12.5 x 17 Cooper SST. Bushwacker Flares.

We should have the smaller after the holiday.

The one you see in the description is a Yukon Chevy front spindle and hub...

These are great to use to eliminate the snap ring on a Ford 8.8 too...
