The sterling has wide cut steep splines while the 60/70 has narrow cut splines with less of an angle.

Interesting.. my buddy made a 609, using 50 knuckles, dana 60 shafts and a 9" center. He turned down sterling side gears, and put the in a 9" carrier to make a spool, and the 60 shafts slid right in..
