    Can you explain how they make the turn radius small with that wide of an axle? I know when I briefly ran 2.75 backspacing (wheels with spacers) my turning radius felt massive.

    While my XD60 front axle has the older Pro 60 carried over from the ProRock 60, it is a bad ass axle. Beefy has hell with those massive axle tubes. It's great having the confidence
    To use the skinny pedal when needed with no worries about breaking anything.

    There's a lot more to turning radius than steering angle and wheel back spacing. What really makes a difference is reducing or eliminating scrub radius. To do this, the steering axis inclination needs to meet as close as possible to the center line of the wheel and where the rubber meets the road. This allows your wheels to pivot instead of scrub and that improves your steering considerably.

    A very informative, interesting and awesome post (and upgrade!). Congrats on the new axle with awesome innovations! Can't wait to see some shots of it out on the trails.

    There's absolutely nothing wrong with the Pro 60. We've been running it for over 8 years and well over 100,000 miles on Moby - the exact same setup and without any changes to it. Still doing it's job great. The Pro 1550 is just a new and more advanced version of it.

    Lol I am going to need to find a good video tomorrow. It's past my thinking hours.

    Do the Pro 1550 knuckle come standard on all XD60s? Like the ones that come in the "elite pro rock" axle combo (60/80) ?

    Excellent write-up. I really appreciate all the photos with explanations.
    Love the way the 5.5 backspace wheels cover/protect the ball joints and calipers.

    No, the Pro 1550 does not come standard on a XD60 but if I recall, it is included if you get the Elite ProRock XD60/80 axle combo.
