how do the splines of a 14 bolt compare to the sterling and the dana 60?
14 bolt is coarse 30 spline 1.5 inch with a 7,000 ft lb torque rating. Dana 60 is fine 30 spline 1.31 inches and has a torque rating of 4,500 ft lb. Dana 70's have 1.5 inch 35 fine spline with a 10,000 ft lb torque rating. I've never seen the ratings posted for sterlings, but being extremely similar to a Dana 70, I would believe it would be rated around the same.
