99+ is the metric pattern that should match our D50 solid.well the sale went through on the d50. goin to pick it up today. trying to find a rear for it now. was thinking d60hd or a sterling 10.25/10.5 wht are peoples opinions? also im aware the 10.5 has 35 spline shafts does anyone know the bolt pattern and pinion yoke size?
lolicopterD30 and with chromo shafts you can run 37's all day.
Let me reword this.As for parts compatibility between the SA D50 and D60, everything but the differential innards and the inner axle shafts should swap between it and '99-'04 D60s.
Sell it and buy a 60, your way over thinking this. I sold a front Ford 60 2 months ago for $450. They are out there.could i bore out the axle tubes and line where the carrier bearings sit? and then run 60 guts? only reason i would do tht much work is i got the thing for 200 plus a trade for an 8.8
Wheel joints are the same on both (you may be thinking the TTB D50 which has the different u-joints).Let me reword this.
As for parts compatibility, nothing except the diff cover and hubs out are the same.
That means the entire diff is different, the axle shafts are different, the wheel joints are different.
