    front will be a TTB suspension so forget that real quick. Its like the F150s front setup where it has 2 seperate pieces, whatever its crap and won't fit anything but an F250. Rear will either be a Dana 60 or a Sterling 9.25 either one is a good axle but I'd say its a Dana 60.

    Our 80's ford f-250 (gas) has IFS up front, and a dana 60 SF out back.

    TTB is fords model of IFS, Twin Traction Beam IIRC. A guy I use to go wheeling with had one and we called the Egg Beaters, nothing like aligning the POS every 3 months.

    The front TTB axle should be a Dana 50 ( VERY similar in strength to a 44 ) but they have hubs and brakes of a Dana 60 .
    The rear should not be a Sterling 10.25 ( they came in service around 1985/1986 or so ) but a Dana axle ( check the B.O.M. to be sure ) . If the rear axle is a Dana 60 it just might be a factory rear 35 spline set up -so check it out .
    HTH , Tom
    Note : Ford , for some reason , used some strange axle set ups in the mid eighty's so becareful - some F-250's came with S/F C-clip rear 60's and small hub 44's up front .
    If you take some good pictures of the chunks and hubs it will be fairly easy to see what it has .

    HD or LD f250
    Light duty has semifloating Sterling rear and a D44 TTB
    Heavy duty has full floating Sterling rear and a d50 TTB
    IIRC

    Supercab diesel should be D50TTB and Dana 70FF. (My buddy's stock '85 F250SC diesel was this way.)

    Regular cab is likely a D44TTB and D61SF unless its the high (8000+lb) GVW.

    No Sterling 10.5" until '85 at the earliest.
