Full float axle shaft flanges

I read on a forum a while back stating the bolt flange to the hub on sterling 10.25/.5 axles is the same as the flange on the Dana 60, but I can't seem to find the forum or an answer on any forums, I was just wondering if anyone could confirm this? Maybe somebody with both these axles can snap a picture of the flanges with a measurement across from bolt hole to hole, or anything? Thanks in advance.
Flame suit on.

I've got a 10.5 and 10.25 I can pull the measurement on this week, but you're on your own for 60 stuff.

Sorry, but I didn't feel like digging into the 93 10.25 today, but did pull a shaft from the 01 10.5.
8bolt pattern of course and found my dial caliper more easily than my tape measure, so...
My attempted center of hole to center of hole was: 3.977" / 4"?

Outer diameter of flange: 4.765"



Outer flange thickness:


Inner flange diameter:


Total flange thickness:

dana stuff I have does not use the inner flange with O ring. my 10.25 does
I can duplicate those pics with a d70u axle or a durasolid 4340 in a few minutes

From info I had found in the past, I think it is a unique sterling feature, that was why I included it in the measurements.

Re: Full float axle shaft flanges

Oh yeah, I forgot about the o ring, I guess I'll have to just get custom shafts made, I was planning on running rcv double splined shafts with their Dana 60 drive flange if the measurements matched, guess I can't without the o ring

Just run RTV or the standard steel gasket instead of the o-ring .

Ford went with the o-ring same reason as the ratcheting rear spindle nut. Makes it easier for the dealer to deal with and to assemble on the line.

I was wondering if that would work, since it is what other axles do. Not that it matters to me, not sure I can break a stock shaft with a worn out 4.0 and 40ish" tires.

I mean, I'm the guy in my wheeling group that could break a steel ball in a rubber room... But my money is on breaking a 30 spline stub first once my 1ton swap is done.

While I want to agree, budget and deadline say, not yet. They should be upgraded before I step up from the nearly bald 38's I'll be running at first though.

How much would someone be looking at to have a set of flanges made, to run double spline shafts?

And I know the stock shafts are 35 spline, but are they the same as Dana 35 spline?
