Default Sterling 10.25 and D70

I'm considering swapping a D70 into my F-250 because it has the gear ratio I want to run, disc brakes should be cheaper, and it'll bolt in. Not much lof that will matter if I need to fawk with my rear dshaft. Do any of you know if the pinion is roughly the same length and if the yoke is the same size? I presume for something that isn't wheeled, the length difference won't matter much. If the pinion yoke is different, I can probably swap that out.

I just wanted to check and see if this is as easy as it sounds. Axle is out of the same era truck as mine, so all suspension parts ought to line right up.

What did the D70 come out of?

Missed that last part! I thought the D70 ford's were DRW only?

Assuming they were both SRW pickup truck axles (Not cab and chassis, they are different) they should be close. Brake fittings (ebrake) might be a touch different, driveshaft *might* be different, but I bet they are the same.

you really dont need discs on the sterling. the drums are plenty large and are nearly impossible to overheat.

Yeah, but disc brakes are bling.
