Default Whats my axle?

What is this? a Sterling 10.25?

It's under my 1999 E-150 conversion van.

I'd guess it to be a 9.75" ring gear though.



Conversion vans are always weird, since they start off as Cargo's


and bruce one of those tags on it might tell you what it is. :tonka:

I couldn't read any more of the tag in person that you can in the picture. The undercoating on them's pretty thick. Maybe sometime when it's warmer and dryer I'll take a closer look.

Thats what I thought. It's huge. Hardly any ground clearance.

I would agree, they look the same, but F150s (and assumingly E150s) get the 9.75s instead of the 10.25s...

IIRC the vans still got 60's in 99 so most likely a 9.75" like above said
