Rear axle

I was looking at buy a sterling 10.25 from an 89 f350 with 3.55 gears to use in my 95. It looks like it will work but I just wanted to make sure first.

Yup, direct bolt in. the only difference is the pinion yolk length. The early are the Less desirable due to lack of strength and the nut tends to back its self off. I'm not sure what year they changed, somewhere in the mid 90s. Either way, the 89 axle will work fine

Do you think it can handle 300-350 hp? Right now my truck is still stock but I plan on doing stage 2 rosewoods and a d66 in the future.

Yup, it will take it jut fine. Just before you put the axle in service, check the splines on the pinion and red locktite the nut back on

Yes my truck is a c&c, but I plan on running a 4 link in the rear so I won't be using the leaf springs.
