1997 F250 4x4 D50 to D60 front axle swap?
So, if there is a good thread that already answers all or most of my questions, please feel free to direct me to it.
1.I'm wondering what all is needed to do this swap. A complete new parts list and a list of all of the D50 parts, if any, that can be reused ...brakes, hubs, ball joints (i just replaced them!), gears (I have 3.55s), etc?
2. Also, if I do a stock-height swap (no lift, stock 350 springs) how much of a lift will I get over the stock F250 clearance and is there a difference in the stock rear height between the 1997 F250 and F350?
3. Finally, I know folks always throw around figures about how cheap (relatively) it is to do these mods, but I'd like some "real world" estimates on doing this (<$1,000 or >$1,000). Maybe, some folks that thought it was going to be cheaper than it ended up?
If you could put your responses relative to the question #s, I'd appreciate it.
All help greatly appreciated.
