Default Changing From Hubs on a '60 GMC

This little sidetrack mission started with trying to change the barings.......

Another BB member told me that the 1962 Chevy C10 hubs have roller barings and fit on the 1960 GMC/Chevy Spindles. If I can confirm and find these hubs I'll make the switch. Another member told me that making the witch would help improve highway speed issues as the OEM type ball baring really don't like being driving long distance at 60+mph. But I'm trying to see if they come with 6 lugs for my rims.

Any leads ya'll have for the 62 hubs, I'd appre. will start the parts house serve asap.

Thanks
Jake

Smile Re: Changing From Hubs on a '60 GMC

Jake, any '63-'70 1/2T GM truck hub/drum should slip right on. The '59-older conversion kits won't work because of the outside diameter of the bearings. I hope this is of some help.
