dodge axles...

I know the first answer, but they were converted to front leafs already...
Drivers side drop, 60 front and an 80 back. Matched set with 4.11 gears outta 01 3/4 ton. 700 bucks. anybody have any experience or am i just going to have to get my tape measure and make some really close measurements before I make a 700 dollar gamble?

They will work most likely. If you can weld on new spring perches. Just make sure width is close. New wheels can fix most width issues.

Ok sweet. Any opinion on the strength of the D80 rear vs the ford 10.25? I had a 99 dodge and never had any issues with it...

I believe they are stronger actually. I've heard of many people blowing up the Sterlings and throwing in D80's instead. I want one for rear discs.

I think the sterlings are stronger but there is zero aftermarket parts for em. And another way to go rear disc is the 99 and newer E-series rear axle. They are still 8 x 6.5

Just make sure you eliminate the Dodge CAD system on the passenger side axle. Dodge used a 2 piece passenger side axle shaft that was linked together by a collar that slid into place when vacuum was applied (when shifting into 4wd).

There are kits out there to completely eliminate the CAD.

You will also have to use the same spring perches found on the F-350's driver side so you will have a track bar mount on the axle.
