Auto-hubs can always be upgraded to warn hubs.

your main issue with the newer axles should be whether or not you want to deal with the "Unit bearings" on the front D60's not liking larger tires with shallow backspacing (reversed wheel look)


The 97-03 f150's were heavy, the newer ones I believe are even heavier yet! the oil coolers really dont net much weight in the grand scheme of things.

You didnt confirm if you had all the fixins for fabrication either?

Quote from Big Trouble: my f150 is the heaviest f150 I have ever owned she has the block heater from the factory.

Thats why I brought up the fact of the block heater Klitch. I wasnt "nit picking" about it. Just merely making a point. An oil cooler and a trans cooler doesnt mean anything either! Just part of a simple towing pkg added at the factory. All of my trucks have had them, even my Chebby! Heavier would mean thicker frame, beefier suspension, and heavier axles. Im not trying to bust his chops, just wanna make sure he knows what he's talkin about.

To answer your question, yes it will fit. Basically any axle will fit as long as you have to correct tools for the job and the know-how to get it done. As you get more serious about doing the SAS, we will surely help you out.

OK! Now I see why you say its heavier. The F250 axle was only added under certain trucks. I dont know if it was an option, a mistake, or the factory trying something out. I recall seeing VERY FEW F250's with the same body style that you have. Most 250's and 350's ALWAYS had a different body style than the F150's. The model years like you have just somehow had a few F250's that Ford pushed out are a tester. Not sure how many know that..........

Cat are you referring to the 97 F250 LD, which was similar to the F150 7700 pkg that I know nothing about?

BT: Find out which axles you want to start with, try to locate some and let us know. A few of us here have a certain vendor we've been buying from, so far he's treated me well, as well as Cecil.

Yeah! Those are the ones. I wasnt sure what models they were tho. I just recall seeing a few around these parts. Only real way to tell a difference was to see the badging on the fenders.

Your truck has a 9.75 5 lug rear end... the superduty has a sterlin 10.25 and sterlin 10.5 the 10.25 has the 8x6.5 bolt pattern. The 10.5 has the 8x170mm.
