Sterling 10.25 pinion offset?

Hey all,
Just picked up my HPD60/Sterling 10.25 combo for my one-ton build.
Noticed the pinion is offset to one side on the sterling

The pinion is offset.....just checked for sure...it's offset by about 2-2.5".
Can I still use this diff?

I use one in my CJ7. My friend uses one in his CJ5. My brother uses one in his S10. No issues with any. What are you worried about? The small amount of offset isn't really any big deal?

Just making sure it's not a big deal.
This is my first build on one-ton axles so this is all new to me.
Also there is surprisingly little on axle swaps using this axle...everything I've read says it's strong, has good clearance, and monster bearings...but nothing about the offset pinion.
Thanks for the information!

I have one too. Run a CV and call it a day.

Yup it should work out good for you. Keep an eye on the axle shaft bolts, as some people have issues with them coming loose (locktight fixes it). I love mine.

How much stretch are you running on the YJ?

If my measurements are correct the pinion is going to offset approx 1.75" from the center of the truck. I am planning on about 5" of stretch in the rear.

I want to figure out if this is going to be a problem before I do any more work on this pig.

7" in the rear I think. I guess I don't understand what you are worried about. My 10.25 was off a '93. What could be the problem? there is nothing in the way that isn't easily moved.

some pics of my mock up. not the final version
