Solid axle swap

Aright i think its time for my 1995 f250 to get its solid axles swap. Now question is what year f350 do i need to get the axle from. Also will my brakes rotors work on the solid axle because i just bought them last month.

Find a D60 from a 95-97 your Calipers and rotors will work. Get the TC yoke and the DS along with the sway bar, track bar, brackets and most important the bottom U bolt bracket thats loose and not part of the axle!!!

Hope your planning on a RS-V and B code spring swap..you know you want a great riding truck! We developed this mod 9 years ago and have helped countless OBS owners have the best riding truck. We have everything for this mod.

PM me if I can help

It all depends on the lift..go high enough or drive in Hi range 4x4 and you will need a CV.

3" and stock F250 DS is doable esp with stiff OBS springs that don't move much.
