I doubt porting will make it easier just faster maybe. You could drill out the orifice for more speed or shim the relief for more power

Got my axles, wheels and tires yesterday. Still need to buy the parts from Jesse @ Farmboy Fab.



But heres some pictures of what I have. I will need to rebuild the axles since they do have some leaks, and it will be easier with them out from under the truck.



I did get some surprises though, the axles were supposed to be out of a 93 F250 which would have been a ball joint style frontend, well they werent they were 91 or older being that they are king pin. This was a great surprise. I also was happy to find the Sterlin 10.25 has a locker already installed (no stock Limited Slip). The front end also came with the tie-rod with 1" hiem joints, and DOM tubing, and a steering stabalizer. The biggest surprise was the stock hubs were upgraded to WARN manual locking hubs. Im very excited to start the rear build. I need to start piecing together rear disc brake swap, from what i have found its about a $500 swap so if i can find a GM 14 bolt geared to 5.13:1 with a locker and disc braked, I might just pick that up and get rid of the sterlin 10.25.



Ill keep yall updated on the build as i get more parts in.

Nice setup, decent price too
The Dana 60 ball joint was used in the "lighter" gvw f-350's
the kingpin was for the heavier gvw, not sure what the actual numbers were.
Rear disc's are fairly easy and cheap if you don't mind building some stuff on your own. I'm guessing it could be done for around 3-400 with new rotors and calipers. Ill let you know as soon as i do mine

Thanks blue, I know the axles are 88-91 cause thats the time frame that they used KING PIN and 36.5" spring perch width.

After you cut your brackets i might have you mail me a paper or cardboard template: Then ill just bust out a set
