Rear axle replacements

Anybody out there know if you can use a F350 rear axle in place of the E350 axle? Would like to get a full floater thats wider so I can get rid of the spacers.I know Dynatrac makes one but would like to go the junkyard route to save some green if possible.Mine is a 2007 Quigly E350 with 3.73 gears.

Thanks Wildhare

Re: Rear axle replacements

#1 option is the E350 SRW cutaway. It's the D70 full float, but 4" wider than the vans.

The pickup axles will work, but you will need new spring perches and shock mounts, and the bolt pattern is the same. U-joint off-road sells a conversion kit to fit the Sterling axle under the vans.

My '00 wagon came with the D70 full float.

The E350 SRW full floating axle (D70) that I picked up was the same width, flange to flange, as the semi-floater I pulled out. And I had to modify the adapter/spacers to fit them on the full floater. Still, much easier than adapting a pickup axle. And much stronger than the D60 SF.

I'm not sure when they increased the width. I think maybe in '08. You are right, for a while the cutaways and vans had the same width axle, but the newest ones are wider.
