would a 97 F350 have a d60?

I'm looking to put a d60 in my 97 F250 4x4. I'm looking for older,non running, etc. completed trucks that may have the d60 in it. I've seen a couple 97 f350 4x4 for a reasonable price, but from the pics I can not tell if it has a d60. Its at an auction can't really call and ask them.

Thanks for any help!

Yes, the F350's came with D60 front axles as standard equipment. To do a conversion on your truck, you'll need the axle itself (hubs, rotors, bearings, and calipers are interchangeable with the 250's TTB axle), along with the F350's two tie rods, track bar, track bar mount, and the D60 mounting shackles for the U-bolts (which are the same size u-bolts as the TTB). Some folks also use the 350's pitman arm, which has a larger offset, but many have converted without swapping pitman arms with no issues.

The only difference between a 97 f250 and a 350 is the front end. 350's have d60's

I know this is an old thread but it touches on what I was searching for. I'm hopefully going to be buying a 96 F250 in the next few days and I'm curious what it would take to make it essentially a 350. I know the front end is different but I was wondering about the rear. So, the rear ends are the same on the two models? I'm thinking there is some difference back there to achieve the factory stance of the 350, but I have no idea.

The rears are identical. Swapping the D60 for the D50 will raise the front a couple of inches, therefore, you'll also need the lift blocks and u-bolts for the F350 rear to put the truck at the original F350 stance.
