Post Van D60???

It infuriates me every time I see a lame-ass E 250 or 350 with a D60 rearend. The late models even have disc brakes!!!!

Anyone have any info on these guys? Spline count, years of disc brakes, WIDTH, Anything wierd about them???

Rear discs are a 99-up feature.

Some have offset difs. In fact, most do. The max offset for them is 6", I believe, so it's still workable.

Be careful most late model E250 and E350s have ford Sterling axles. They're stout as hell but have limited gear ratios and lockers. <IMG SRC="smilies/glasses.gif" border="0">
