  • Front Axle / Front Suspension: 1956 1/2 ton Transtar Front End

    Hello
    My Transtar is in winter storage, and I don't have a Studebaker Manual for it.
    I would like to know a few measurements for the 56 1/2 ton Transtar front axle
    Can anyone tell me the following measurement ?
    1 Front hub to hub face ?
    2 Front tire track width ?
    3 Frame rail measurement directly above the front axle
    Thanks in advance

    If I remember correctly, the Studebaker Truck Talk site's discussion database should have this info somewhere.

      From shop manual.
      Front wheel tread: 60 13/16"
      Width of frame, front: 28 1/32"

      The truck data book has some data, but not exactly what you wanted.
      Width over (outer face) rear hubs: 71 1/8"
      Width over rear tires (assume outer edge): 69"
