    See one for sale, cheap. Are the spring perches the same width? If they are Danas, is it worth looking at or would it just be a headache?

    If it has a solid front axle and not TTB it will be a reverse cut (high pinion) dana 60. But my guess will be the TTB for 1983.

    If you luck out and it is a dana 60 front take the money you save and buy a 4L80E and chevy t-case for a IFS truck and you have a pass side driveline. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Rear is most likely to be a Dana 70.

    I believe the F250 used solid axle w/ TTB and the F350 use solid and leaf spring. Should be a D60 front and Ford 10.5 rear if SRW.

    I believe f-350's were Dana 50's (drive's drop) until '86 when they went back to D60's. The rear should be a Sterling 10.25 if SRW and D70 if DRW I think.

    f350 were solid axel d60's or d50's. the rears were sterling 10.25. f350 were leaf spring and f250 were leaf spring with an independent d44. either way, the pinion is on the drivers side. conventional chev is pass side. driveshaft would suck!!

    Mattman hit it on the nose on the front end. From 80 thru 86 Ford went cheesey and put the TTB D50 in both the F250 and the F350. I think the rear will be a SEMI-floater D60 on a SRW and a D70 FF in a DRW. I may be wrong on the rear end but I think the Sterling rear axle wasn't introduced until the mid to late 80's.
