Is this a Dana 70 SRW

Hi guys,
I have a 04 box van that I'm building into a camper. There is a pretty nasty little whine and slight clunk on launch from it, and I'm thinking about going 3.73 and a limited slip in the rear.

Here are photos. I found this thread through searching which is why I posted it there.
What a great forum here though, I look forward to participating!

Here is a link to where I house photos for the build..

Welcome aboard, I can't wait to see where you're going to take this build.

I've always thought these types of rigs would make a great platform to build on. Make sure you keep us updated on your progress. Don't forget to take and post lots of

Re: Is this a Dana 70 SRW

The Vehicle Certification label shows axle code 56. Assuming Ford doesn't change these codes year to year then you have 4.10 gears, non-limited slip Dana. Code 52 is the same but dually. My decoder ring doesn't indicate D60 or D70, hopefully someone else can tell you.

Hope this helps,
Ray

Re: Is this a Dana 70 SRW

thank you. Very odd because I had a comment from a van owner saying it doesn't look like a SRW axle and that the SRW axles have the wheel right up against the brakes normally. Very confusing. The rear width is only maybe 1-2" wider at most than the front with this setup. It came from Supreme Corporation this way.

Thanks for the comments also! I can't find my camera with a ton of pics of some of the progress including our little "Kitchen" which is mostly just a sink...

Here is the rear tire mount, ladder, and bike mount I came up with. It's on hinges so it swings open and locks closed..

Yup, that's a 70 SRW. The mid-tank cutaways got the same axle as the vans, with the hub against the rotor. The rear-tank SRW cutaways got the wide-track version.
