Ford parts interchange ?

Any one know right off . Does the newer 1/2 ton Ford rotors and hubs off the twin I beam front fit the older Ford 44 fronts ?

Iv got donor locke outs hubs and rotors for my project 44 if so !

I've read of it being done. Seems that it would.

I swapped solid D60 dually hubs with Crassel for SRW F-350 hubs from one of those D50 things and my shit fit right on. Don't know about the D44 stuff, but it sounds like they are the same.

But that would mean someone at Ford has a brain, which we know is impossible.

Im guessing they will , why retool to make the outer stuff just becuase they dropped the straight axle . Guess we will find out for sure when i get back home . Ill knock the twin beam apart and see if they fit .

Figured if some one all ready tried it they could save me any wasted time .

Hub and rotors are the same between IFS and solid 44. Spindles are not.

yep all the d44 hubs are the same unless going from manual to auto hubs (vice versa) and the dredded 87-88 hat style hubs are unique to themselves as they use a shorter spindle and also short axleshaft.

D50 & D60 used the same size hubs at least up into the Super Dutys. Started with the TTB 50's.
