Axel Question in preparation of d60 swap

My axel code on the door jam sticker says 35...I believe this means I have 4:10 gears. Is this correct? I assume I need to have a Dana 60 with 4:10 gearing as well.

I have a line on an intact Dana 60 still mounted to a 95 f250. Complete assembly including springs, track bar and mount, brakes, tie rods, steering stabilizer, and pitman arm, u-bolt plate. Price is $900.

Is this a good price?
Is there anything else I should snag off the truck?

4.10s open rear, yes you need a 4.10 front axle. to me 900 is too much unless everything has been gone through and is new. i paid 500 for the last 2 i bought. both in need of a rebuild. if it is a 95 you will need to swap brake calipers.

I plan to do the seals, bearings, and U joints. Is there any other parts I should consider.

Also, I was under the impression the 95 ford Dana was compatible with the 96 ttb brakes. This is from the how to by mjonesjr.

"The swap itself is fairly easy if you are mechanically inclined. I am basing this how-to on using a '95-'97 Dana 60. If you use a '94 or older Dana 60, you will have to do some modifications to your brakes as the '94 and older axles have a different caliper and caliper mount."

I thought late 95's had bolt on, either way axel will work fine for your truck, price is to high if needs anything, I paid $500 for one and traded a free winch for another, so they come easy, just gotta be patient, also if it is complete your gonna need to grind the tab on your brake line block to make it bolt on, good luck

If you have a 1356 t case take the front drive shaft, if you have the 4407 your fine with the stock one

locker

they changed in late late 95 from slide pins to bolt on. Maurice was incorrect on that

you will need to have your drive shaft shortened. if you take the 350 with the double cardan joint you will need to take the yoke of the T-case. it is different than the yoke for the 250 shaft

your shaft was stock so it fit the transfer case. and they will fit with the axle but they will not compress as much as they should if the suspension fully compresses, if you have lift springs you will be okay
