I had my parts supplier run the numbers, and he said they match the axle out of a 99 E150.................I was told that it was a 5x5.5 by the seller, and I think the person who sold it to me honestly believed that. It's more my fault for not putting a tape measure across the studs.

I want to use this axle because it is very low mileage with the limited slip, and I want to run disk brakes.
