Are you sure it's out of a 2000? You need a '97 or earlier. IIRC until '04 the F250 SDs had a solid D50 front axle, not D60 and it' a LOT different than what we swap into the OBS 250s. Everthing is different from spring length to shaft yoke.

For the amount of time, effort and money you are going to spend triyng to make it work you would be WAY ahead just getting the right D60 in the first place. I'm not kidding dude, everything is different. Nothing is going to bolt up.

Having said that, good luck

i agree with JJ

dont forget the d50 also has 8x170mm lug pattern not the 8x6.5 the OBS trucks do.

sorry i stand corrected they are 1" longer shouldnt be to hard to fab up at all actually. if anything i'll make my own shackles my only concern now is the driveline. not really worried about things bolting up now haha thats what the welder is for. but the drive shaft definitely was good information thank you. im sure i woulda figured it out but nice to know before hand

Get an rsk and the springs will bolt up, the trac bar mount will need fabbing to work as well
