    What is the width of a drw 70 vs a srw 70. How can you tell the difference?

    GM, Dana 70HD dually rear axle, 73" WMS to WMS. This is the wide one from a dually pick up, not the 14 Bolt FF dually axle you find in cab and chasis 1 tons.

    There are several D70 single rear axles around. I don't have the specs. on any of them. Sorry.

    GM never used a srw dana 70 in their pickups. Maybe in the P vans or something, but not in trucks. I have been looking for one a little off and on, and it seems like the best bets are the dana 70's from late 70's/Early 80's Ford F250/F350/E350. These could be either the 70u or the 70HD, srw.

    The d70U I pulled out of an '85 F250 is 65" WMS to WMS.
