Quigley E250 VS E350

I`ve been searching for a 4x4 conversion for my 95 E350 7.3 van for what seems like forever!
I recently located a complete fresh removed Quigley 4x4 system with all brackets, T-case, adapter, gas tank etc. all from 96 van that in the begining was advertised as an E350. however further research is revealing it to be an E250 with a Dana 44 rather than the Dana 60 I need.
Here is the question: I also know a guy who has a Dana 60, front axle only from a 1996 E350 quigley van. Does anybody know if the link arms where the same ones on an E250 & E350.
I`m thinking I could just buy the full kit from the E250 then buy the Dana 60 front from the other guy, and swap in the needed heavier front axle.
But I`m unsure whether the axle will bolt up to the link arms or whether I`m buying a bunch of incompatible parts. I know the fron driveshaft would need shortened and probably a different yoke as well but I`m unsure the rest "Link arms, Track bar etc".
Anybody have any info, would be a life saver. the full kit is nowhere near me to be able to look at it and take measuments.
I`m going to look at the D60 axle tomorrow.
HELP!!!!
Thanks

Re: Quigley E250 VS E350

Last year i purchased a similar complete conversions with the dane 44 with i plan to change out the front in the far future. I don't know the answer to you question but you could call Quigley with the vin no. from the donor van and ask, they are very nice people. Be advised that their is a lot of welding and cutting of the front cross section of the frame, my kit came complete with the front half of the van. Also lookout for different transmissions sizes,theirs big differences between the adapter from the tranny and transfer case which affects driveshaft lengths. Their are several threads that discuss this in this back hole of information .....Hope this helps Dave

Once you're down to the axle brackets any competent 4x4 shop (even 4wheelParts) should be able to move the brackets from your 44 or make new ones. It's the van side that is tough to fit things on.
