Ha,ha, haaaaaaaaaaaa! [15] [15] [15] [15] [15] [15] [15] [15] [15]



My cost on upper and lower ball joints and axle u-joint for just 1 side on my 3500 was over $300! So add labour plus shop supplies plus parts mark up on that and if you're doing both sides expect a much bigger bill then that!

I like this idea, anyone know if it would work on my '06 3500? I have no idea what front end is in mine, D60? Would be nice to have hubs and real bearings too.

Do the work yourself, Bring it in for alignment when your done.

DYNATRAC FREE-SPIN HEAVY-DUTY FRONT HUB CONVERSION KIT. If you need new hub and bearing assemblies and brakes, this is the way I would go.

Yours is a different diff, same company that makes chevy axles I read somewhere and no it will not work on yours. Somewhere in that post it showed a link to someone with the newer trucks, he cut the axle tube off and welded on d60 parts. That seemed like a little to much for me.

Do you know what a couple of unit bearing assemblies cost?

At least the dynatrac kit is serviceable. For sure it depends on the truck. I would consider it on a truck that I would be keeping for a few years. Or if it eats unit bearing assemblies.

Nice kit, and yah if I knew I would keep this truck for 10 years or more I would definitely buy it. Maybe if a bearing assembly goes south on mine I'll bite the bullet and get them, but for now it'll stay stock.
