Re: drw to srw conversion

by doing that will the rear wheels track the same as the front wheels assuming they are all single rear wheels?

thanks.

Re: drw to srw conversion

I don't see why it wouldn't track the same as long as you are running a srw wheels, my first post should have included this but standing in line at taco bell didn't give me enough time.

Re: drw to srw conversion

I'm not sure about on the Sterling rear axle, but I do know on Chevy's, the WMS to WMS mounting width on the rear axle is different. Best thing to do, in my opinion, would be to find a SRW axle. They're dime-a-dozen.

Re: drw to srw conversion

Are you talking pick-up or cab-n-chassis?

If you are talking about taking a DRW pick-up and making it a SRW oick up, you need to change the COMPLETE rear axle. The DWR axle is 6" wider than a SRW pick-up axle.

For the front, just pull of the front hubs and swap them for a regular D60 or a D50 hubs


If you are talking c-n-c DRW to a SRW, IIRC the c-n-c axle is VERY close to a SRW pick-up axle but not quite. can remember if it was wider or narrower

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seat for OBS. PM me if any known
