I would think the caps are all the same. If you need the size, let me know and I will check what I have.

Bill
Maybe he likes to keep busy working on his truck? And he knew that the Cummins would not do that? 😀

A lot beefier! And the bearing dust cap look MUCH deeper. Interesting why they are still running 8 lug nuts vs 10.

The rotors and bearings are much larger as well. I don't recall if the same studs are used though.
As to 8 versus 10 studs, I would guess that is determined by wheel availability.
Hispec is the supplier and they do not list 10 lug wheels.

According to MOR/ryde - for comparison the outer bearing on the 9K is the same size as the inner bearing on the 8K.


For comparison these are pics of the 3 IS axles DRV uses.
(these are posted somewhere else on the site along with other pictures from MOR/ryde)

Use large Channel Locks, works just fine! Be sure to use the GOOD "O" rings.
