10.25 and 10.50 Sterling

I am searching for all information I can find on these rear ends. Does anyone know hao many different widths are available and what they came in. I have found that there are three generations of this. One post said that the gear set is interchangeable among all by using a different yoke ? I have found that the rotors are different from a srw to a drw and that brings the question of changing the caliper mount and rotor to change to drw. First, I WILL TRY TO DEAL WITH THE WIDTH and then address the other issues?? All info will be apreciated

Very correct! I am trying to put a disc set up under a F350 cab and chassis. This is a 96 model and has the 34 inch wide frame rails. I am quite sure that moving the spring perches is going to be required. I would seriously like to put this together using off the shelf FORD original parts if possible. So far I have found that the rotors are diff from srw to drw. My truck is dual rear wheels and I have another about three inches on either side that I can bring the wheels out to the outside. Please share all ideas as Im really scrambling on this one. Thanks

Re: 10.25 and 10.50 Sterling

How about you use a D80 from a 87-97 F-superduty , the bad part is you will have 10 lug rims

OR

use a 99-up Cab and chassis 10.5 axle or maybe those are Dane 80s too, i know my 00 dually pickup was a D80, Either way you will have the 8 on 170mm bolt pattern though

Re: 10.25 and 10.50 Sterling

What about a Dana 70 drw out of a van? That would be the right width axle with drw and disc brakes. It would also have the 8x6.5 lug pattern. The perches might even be in the right location.

I don't think you're gonna want a D70. Just go for the 80.

This is the first hook on this D70, the truck dyno'd 520 before some work was done to it that added a bit more. Probably gettin close to 550-575 in this vid.
