Solid axle swap

Ok so i currently have a Dana 50 front axle in my 92 f250 4x4 5sp and I found a Dana 60 front and a new sterling for the rear (something is wrong with mine) for $400 which is cheaper than it would cost to have mine fixed so i figured i might aswell swap both front and rear axle at the same time. Any way the only problem is that all the grease fittings and stuff are shot and idk what all the different bars and arms are called in order to get the new parts and i have searched high and low for diagrams with no luck could someone please help?
thanks

It will bolt right up...make sure you get the drivers side U bolt plate..you cannot find them!

I'd also get the steering linkage, track bar and bracket, sway bar and brackets etc.

Now if you want to to ride geat when done we can set you up.
