Can anybody tell me what axles I have? The numbers on the front are 5298 and the rear are 5300. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

DON'T HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THE NUMBERS MEAN BUT ON A F-350 REAR WILL BE A STERLING 10.25" AND FRONT WILL BE A DANA 60. IF YOU WANT YOUR GEAR RATIO THERE SHOULD BE ANOTHER SET OF NUMBERS OR JUST CALL THE DEALER AND HAVE THEM PULL YOUR VIN

I think if you get back to the early to mid eightys they use the indepent dana 50 in the front. The superduty you can get either a solid dana 50 or 60. The obs like you have in you pic uses the solid dana 60 front axle. When ford introduced the superduty they changed the ring gear in the rear to 10.5 inches.
