Pics?

why replace your 8.8?

Are you referring to a 9.75 visteon (ford) axle?

or perhaps a D60 (9.75 inch ring gear)?

some mod is almost mandatory on any swap unless you have an older truck and just swap up to the 9". Welding may not be required, but the pinion snout on all these axles is different (as are a few other minor items, depending on axle).

So, what is the plan? what do you have and why do you wish to do this?

If it's a visteon I still think the aftermarket has not caught up with it, so lockers and such are a no go.

well, you're right, it won't live long. And neither will any semifloat axle with that tire size. The D44 front will be pushed as well, you'll need the extra dough for alloy shafts. An 88 F250 with 5 lug? pics, pics pics and we can tell you exactly what you want to know.

Sterling 10.25? They came in full and semi float. 5-lug...its nothing special. 8 lug, you might have something decent.

I'm planning on swapping in 8 lug axles on the Moose Stang to complete the HD conversion. I have an 84' F-350 parts truck right here, and see no issue with swapping the rear from the F-350 to the 87' Bronco. In fact, I plan to leave the springs bolted to the axle, and do the swap at the hangers. For the front, since I'm not off-roading this, I hope to just change out the spindles.
