Re: What Axle do I want? 9.75 or 10.5 Full Float

I had to pull the trigger today and get some new wheels. Did some searching, Craiglist etc., and couldn't find anything used that I would like under the van. Went with Ultra 164's,17"X9". Are there...

Re: What Axle do I want? 9.75 or 10.5 Full Float

Thanks Baja, yep they switched to the 17's in 2005. The new to me Sterling that I slung under the van is from a 2006 Super Duty. That's why my 16's won't work. The Axle is great because I don't need...

Re: What Axle do I want? 9.75 or 10.5 Full Float

Thanks for that input. I've been looking for 2004 Super Duty Rims in a 17" X 8". Been finding a few on CraigsList but nothing that really works for me. Chris at U-Joint has told me to look at...

Re: What Axle do I want? 9.75 or 10.5 Full Float

Well I just found out the hard way that my 16" wheels are not going to be going back on my van. It turns out that in 2005 Ford increased the size of the brakes on the Sterling axle and went to a 17"...

Re: What Axle do I want? 9.75 or 10.5 Full Float

Well it's been a while and I'm getting real close with having the new axle rolling under the van. I have some pics I will get up shortly.

I have a quick question about the difference in sensors...

Re: K&N intake for 5.4L gas

Re: What Axle do I want? 9.75 or 10.5 Full Float

Ultrasport, that pallet is not patented so go for it, in my case I came up a little short(story of my life), I mean the diff. was hitting in the middle so build your pallet a little...

Re: What Axle do I want? 9.75 or 10.5 Full Float

Here are some pics bringing the axle home after the Pads were welded on. I'm very happy with the condition of this axle. It looks like the brake pads are almost new and we'll see about the rotors. I...

That does help Ultrasport, and that is a great link BigVans, and Baja all I can say is, I'm a little slow! :c5:

Re: What Axle do I want? 9.75 or 10.5 Full Float

Look what showed up. As usual Chris at Ujoint has come through with some nice parts for the conversion.

When figuring out my pinion angle in relation to my spring perches I came up with ~11...

Re: What Axle do I want? 9.75 or 10.5 Full Float

Re: What Axle do I want? 9.75 or 10.5 Full Float

Thanks Baja, I will take your advice on the level, I think I've needed one for a while. I was trying to get the new axle done for the most part with out having to lose the use of my van.

Re: What Axle do I want? 9.75 or 10.5 Full Float

Thanks Ultrasport, I'll do my best with documentation. If you do convert, I think I know where you can get some spacers to convert your rear axle to match the front lug pattern.

BigVans, no, of...

Re: What Axle do I want? 9.75 or 10.5 Full Float

Re: What Axle do I want? 9.75 or 10.5 Full Float

Well I finally made up my mind.

The axle you see pictured is a 2006 Sterling(17,000 miles) out of a Super Duty with 4.30 ratio and LS. Chris at UJoint has been patiently helping me make my...
