Front axle

95 F250 7.3, ifs\twin i beam, how can I if I have a 3850# or a 4600# axle? Doing ball joints and want to get correct joints, I am looking them up now, there are 2 options for the F250, 3850# or 4600# w\4.10's, I have 3.55's so I am assuming the ifs axles are 3850# and the solid axles are 4600# axles.

It's 4600 lb. The lighter axle went under the small-block trucks.

How did it turn out?

Denton, TX

I envy those that know exactly which modification to make and in the most logical of sequences. But not enough to trade for my meanderings and misfires.

1996 F250 crew cab/short bed, 4x4, auto PSD, 6637 air filter, interior grab handles, stainless window vents, remote door locks work with engine running mod.

Easier than I thought. I got the ones for the 4600lb. Fit perfect.

Actually, no. The 3850lb is for the HD D44 that was stopped in 91

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!

I do know there are two options when I looked them up, and they are two different sizes for the different weight axles.
