dana 60 front is worth 1000, a rear is a boat anchor

and 92-96 should be drum brakes and non metric bolt pattern which would make it a 10.25 sterling

'99 superduty.....the OBS fords were all 8 x 6.5" pattern and starting in the mid 80s got 10.25s, ending in 1997. Remember the 1997 F250 and 350s were still the OBS.

It is a sterling 10.25. The sterling is a pretty strong rear end. Some of the older ones had problems with the pinion shaft breaking I think? I have a few of them and have never broken one myself though. The drums on a sterling slide off easier than on a D60 since the drum is a separate unit. Hope this helps.....

Ya your right. First year of the 10.25 i believe was 86, thats what i got for my project, it would be nice to have disc brakes on it though. Just not alot of aftermarket parts for the sterlings besides gears and those cheap posi's. Im just going to weld mine seeing as they are dirt cheap anyways and locker is a waste of money for the rear.

The sterling would be your best bet, its almost a direct bolt in, its what Im gonna be putting under my bronco eventually.

in 8 lug, I would say sterling 10.25..theyre huge. Guys with powerstrokes running 800ft/lbs to a sterling dont have problems, you wont.

a sterling or a d70 are what I would run under a ford
if I was doing a chev again it would be a d70 again

My buddy just put one under his 90 3/4 ton. The one we took out was fawked, the pinion you couldn't move at all, but both axles you could spin freely...I think the spiders let go? It was a semi floater 8-lug rear.

Paid $50 and got a 10.25 flull floater from an 89 F-250. Works good!

might be a different yoke

I know that at stock ride height the D-shaft needs to be shortend 1 inch, you will have to change the yoke on either the diff or the drive shaft depending on if you want to keep the flange and the D-shaft or not. I like the sterling for the fact that most have the VSS sensor for your cruise/RABS, spring perches and shock mounts all line up, and they're stong to, I have one in the 90 F-250 Diesel with the banks turbo I'm driving right now, 503ft lbs at the rear, and not a problem in 17 years.
