Hey guys, wasn't shure about posting this in the 4x4 section.
I have a quigley 4x4 converted and overwheigted e-250 with the 5.4 v8, it has a semi floating rear axle, the van has rsc.
I found this axle:

From my limit understanding i see abs sensors on the sides, does that means that i should be compatible with the rsc on my van? (There was a rear door on the yard that had the rsc logo on the back, they are not shure that it belongs to it, but its the only axle with the sensors on the sides)

Thats a single rear wheel axle right?

It has small drun brake pads that i think are for the hand brake, is it hard or to expensive to get discs, calipers and the caliper brackets? (Could i re use the ones i have on the dana 60 rear that i think o have?)

What kind of axle is this? Sterling 10.5? Dana 70?, it should be a good upgrade from mi sf dana 60 right?

Would my wheel spacers and bolt pattern adapter work on this axles? If not, where coud i get them?

Do i need a new driveshaft for it?

This example is almost compatible, but being 2005-06 it won’t have the big-brakes of the 2008+ Vans, and also the tone ring tooth count won’t match (they can be swapped).

One advantage of this axle is it has the Dana 70 housing. Although it only has the Dana 60 ring and pinion. You can stuff the bigger gear set in.

There’s only one year where Ford used the bigger housing with the bigger brakes, and that’s ‘08. The newer vans went all semi-float.

Van axles are all the 8x6.5 bolt pattern. To match your front axle, a Sterling axle will match. And be full float. I think 2011 is when RSC started coming with the F250s.

Thanks for the info, i'm from Chile, not a big chance of finding a sterling down here.
Would you consider the dana 70 a good enought upgrade?
The tone ring is for the abs sensor??? Do you know what teeth count do i need?
I found a lot of disk brake kits for dana 70 so i hope this won't be an issue.
The junkyard is only asking for 450 usd for the axle, so its fairly cheap.
