84 bronco here 351 auto. going to start on a swap to 1 tons. Got a 91 1ton complete to rob the axles and suspension off. Im goin to tackle the rear first. The goal is to get her up in the air to run 44 inch swampers on her, but for now i will be happy to get the axles under it and then fart with taller springs and hangers later. So for the moment, should i run the 1 ton suspension or use the broncos rear springs? Any angle problems that im going to have to address in the rear off the bat? All comments appreciated.

What axle are you swapping in? D70? Sterling 10.25? 14 bolt?

Stick with the bronco suspension, you shouldn't have any angle problems in the beginning.

went to the junkyard today to try and find a sterling 10.25
Few questions I have are
I found an 86 F250 diesel with a utility box on it and srw hubs full float but since it's 86 it has no vss. I found 1 92 F350 drw with vss and another 90 F350 with utility box vss, and disk brakes? Can I take the SRW hubs from the 86 and swap them onto either of those others? Would I need basically everything from the axle tube out?

There is a ram 3500 van in the yard also. It's like late 90's and SRW. From this thread I'm assuming it's going to be a d70 and will it have vss and would it would right up to my 95 F150?

Also would I have to worry about the short pinion length since I'll be running 5.38's and a detriot?

Some sorta rockwell

So, i picked this thing up of craigslist for $50, figured why not, could be of use for a future project. Anyways, It's a C103.

Here's what I know: '84 axle, out of a UPS truck. Disc brakes, 10 lug bolt pattern (similar to what is running on a F450's these days). 5.29:1 ratio.

Spring perches are 40" apart, but could be moved easily. WMS~WMS = 67".

Pics:




Really I want to know if the 10 lug hubs can be swapped out for the Rockwell 6 lug hubs, specifically the ones off a Rockwell F106. Or maybe I could get the hubs machined to work with that 6 lug pattern? But there isn't much material to work with, seein as how there is already 10 holes drilled in 'em.

I know there isn't a lot of Rockwell info on this site, but I figured it's worth a shot.










Left tag reads "C A3201Y6551" and "001532124"

Right tag reads "C 103 CNX1" (model #)...."14042636" (customer #) and "NK8406730" (serial #)



Middle right number reads "NK8406813"

This thread gets about one post a year so if you guys think I should post this somewhere else I'll do it.
I bolted in a 10.25" I had and noticed it was quite narrow. Figured no big deal, thats the way they were and I'll get some spacers. Then went on a test run. The tires rub the fender well on the inside. Not bad enough to limit travel but you can hear it and see the scuff marks. FYI wheels are 4.5" backspace. So this got me wondering why I've never read any complaints about such a thing. So I did some searching, then some more searching. But came up empty as far as 10.25" axle width goes.
So I measured another 10.25 I have. Turns out the one I put in is ~4" narrower than the other one. WTF? Spring perch width is the same on both at about 44.5".
So does anyone have any info on the widths of these axles? Obviously they came in different widths. Both axles are single wheel from pre 97 trucks. Like I said I searched around here and the interweb but couldn't find much.
Anyway, for those of you putting a 10.25 in your truck, measure it first as there are different width 10.25's.

Little more info.
The narrower 10.25 has the following tag: S132N According to the chart...
Ford F250 Pickup '85-98 over 8500 GVW
Ford F350 Pickup 93-96

The wider 10.25 has the following tag: V168C According to the chart...
Ford F250, F350 Pickup 87-96

So in this one example it appears the heavier duty axle is narrower. But unless I'm mistaken, all the internals are the same (except for maybe pinion length.) This leads me to believe... who the hell knows Check the width!

There was a semi-floating version of the 10.25 around at one point so some of the internal parts would be different.

Right, but this is a full float so it's exactly the same as any other FF 10.25, except for the width. At least that's what I would assume.

I believe so, If your're talking 10.25 and not the 10.5? version. 35 spline, etc. etc. there could be a difference in pinion snout length as I recall.

you mean VSS, did you get fat fingered? Generally as I recall most of them would be from around '95 forward, E250/E350 applications. Would probably be wise to pull an shaft when looking as well, as many will be 32 spline (not bad), some will be 35 spline (would love to have this axle, mine is an old '78 F250 D60 that I had to set up the VSS myself and is 30 spline).

Axle swap

What would it take to swap a 8.8 axle off of a 1999 Ford F150 and put on my 1994 Ford Bronco. Any help would be great. Can this be done. I'm hoping I can just bolt and plug it on.

can a 10.5 be used on a 95 bronco in lieu of the 10.25?

After a solid reading, about a week of research on this site.

i have located a 2007 F250 D60
im using my Rough Country 6 inch coils/shocks/etc.
i am building a crossmember for the front control arms and rear anti wrap bars (why not? lol)

and i have a 10.5 already. what i have seemed to overlook is the specifics of installing the superduty 10.5. and its ok really... i can build what i need to, im no stranger to such things. im no pro.... mind you.. but SOA and SAS is becoming a more frequent venture these days :-) and i have not really dealt with the SD axle options.

i like unit bearings. easy trail fix keep on in the console. ( next to the u joints) lol

any info would be awesome
