Whats needed for 60s install??

I am about to order front and rear Currie 60s. (5.38 and ARBS) What all is needed to bolt them up?

Driveshafts- can these be ordered prior to install or do you have to wait till after install to order to measure? Don't want too much downtime as this is my daily driver.

Air system for ARBs

New wheels with 5x5.5 pattern? I think the rear is dual bolt pattern but I believe the front is not.

Anything else I will need? Trying to narrow down what is needed and cost. Was originally going PR44 front but by time it is fully loaded its not that far off in $$ front a 60. Any other opinions would be great!!

I don't know how much bigger the snout is on a 60 compared to a 44. So, I would wait and measure for the driveshafts.

Marcus (rivercityoffroad) can get you a great deal on a pair of 1350 Tatton shafts. He would probably get you great package deal for the shafts, ARB compressor, axles, and wheels.

No reason not to install the ARB compressor in advance and just wait to run the lines until later. If you only drive on the street, you could go ahead and install the lines and coil them up underneath your rig.

You need a 5x5.5 wheel because you need a larger center bore to fit the front hubs from a 60. At least buy the wheels in advance so they are ready for the switch over of your tires.
