What all is needed to put 2003 1 ton brakes on a 98.5 1 ton?

Recommended Posts

if you have a dana 60 in front, (not sure what the 1 ton used) you can't use the 3rd gen brakes.d60 rotors are pressed on by wheels studs behind the unit bearing. 3rd gens use a more normal slip on rotor.

I have read a few threads about how they are just bolt on upgrades.. I'll see what I can find.

Are 01's and 98's the same up front?

no 00-03 use a 3rd gen style hub, 99'2 and below use the other. the only way to do it on a 99 and below is to swap the entire axle with an 00+ because even if you just tried to swap the hubs they will not line up correctly.
