Help identify 1 ton axle??

Hello everyone. Im starting my 1ton project soon and I've been bouncing around from junkyard to junkyard around my area and i came across a loose set of what I believe are Dana 60's out of a 99 super duty. Im positive the front is a 60 due to the short side axle tube being so close to the C. But the rear I need a little help with.. Im 90% positive its a 60FF with disc brake.

in a 1999 F250, the front should be a Dana 50. Looks identical to a Dana 60, but it's junk.

also both those axles have a funky & undesirable metric bolt pattern.

Appreciate the help guys! I'm heading back over after work today, they've got a slew of 00+ super duty's and a fleet of old delivery vans. Hoping to find a rear d60 out from under one of the e350's they have..

Found the set. Picked them up today for $850. 03 SD60 with an 01 e350 Dana 60 rear disc.

do you plan to address the mismatched bolt pattern? The E350 rear will be the common 8x6.5", but the SD front will be a funky metric 8x170mm pattern.

That's a very good point... I've seen other builds using 92-97 BJ knuckles which ran the 8x6.5" and eliminated the unit bearings.

Or Branik Motorsports makes custom unit bearings that are redrilled to a couple different bolt patterns and accepts a 35 spline upgrade.. $350ea

See the one in the background that's a HD 70, you can tell cause it has the extra pads welded on for the factory airbag suspension, that's the one you should grab or at least get better pics of.

Every one else is right the one your focusing on is a 10.5 and its missing the ABS sensor, not that you will run the ABS just water I bet got in, not enough to damage it, but enough to make me say Hmm.

Jason.


Edit, I ment to say Dana 70.

1993 YJ 4.0 60 Front, Rear steer 60, bolth spooled, 5.38's, 700r/241 39.5 iroks and beating it like it owes me money.

And on the 8th day, God created the 14 bolt...
