agreed, if the truck in your sig is the one in question. are you going to beef up the outers? unit bearings wear out prematurely with 285's. also, with a diesel's redline i think you would be better off with something in the 5.13 range.American said:46's on a d50/10.25 combo? Good luck man. Especially with those tiny pinion gears you're about to be runnin... Not to mention all that fawkin torque you must have.
El Gato said:Guys, thanks for the advice. I will do some work on my outers. Both the Dana 60 and Sterling are up to the task. Doing my math 7.17 seem the way to get to stock specs unless I am missing something. Of course, I do need to keep the RPMs down. Let me sharpen my pencil
I did check out both Randy's and Ford Racing and came up with nothing. I might not have any other choice but stay in the 5.13 range.
I am vacationing in the Caribe for a week. I will check you guys out when I get back.
I was thinking the same, lowest I've ever heard of was the 5.38's for a HP 60CartsXJ said:Just as a side question, what style Dana 60 are you running in the front? Unless its a drive side low-pinion or you switch to a passenger side t-case and front axle, you are going to have a hella hard time finding 7.17 gears for that HP Dana 60.
