SD axle dimensions? (D60 swap question)

Been looking for a D60 to swap into my 95 F250 for a while now. All the axles for our OBS trucks are 1k and up, for just the fronts, which I feel is a bit pricey. However, I have found a set of '00 SD 60's out of a f350 SD, for 750 for the set. Between me and my buddy I have all the know-how/equipment to customize it to fit, but I wanna get an accurate picture of how much work I'm setting myself up for. I believe I would need new rims(different lug pattern, IIRC?), would I need anything else if i grab the complete axle(calipers, springs, etc? Also does anyone have the OBS bracket dimensions so I can could figure out where i need to move the perches and whatnot? Thanks guys

PS. Im doing the rsk/SD spring swap while I'm at it, if that changes it at all

that axle is a straight axle d50, the rear is a direct bolt in, the front has slightly wider spring perches. the bolt patterns are different. i'm sure someone with more info can help you out more

i believe Cary at CT Performance sells a RSK kit to covert to SD axles and springs. which is different then the SD spring RSK for an OBS D60..

also a custom track bar bracket will needed to be installed. and u joints are different, will require custom drive shaft or adapter joint. 1350-to-1410

nope the SDs from 99+ - 02 had D50 in SRW and D60s in DRW starting in 02 all trucks had D60s. the one way to check in the pinion nut. a D50 has a 1 1/8 and the D60 has a 1 5/16

Hmmm...in that case what you guys think bout a 03+ axle and just completely rework the mounting locations? or are the driveline angles different and whatnot?
