The Transit has sold so we're giving it a once over here before it gets an inspection at Ford later this week.



FL5.4 is canning along. Tranny, t-case, shifter, exhaust, shafts, fluids all going in today!

Its time for V6 to get an altitude adjustment. Our shop workhorse wants some attention like his big bros. Just picked up a D50, we have plenty of extra and spare parts laying around so here comes a budget 4" on 255s.

Do you ever do super singles instead of duals?
Only once or twice. The problem with them is overall size options, weight and weight capacity. Most are over capacity and the ride suffers. Then there's the issue of trac width, spacers, etc. The setup on this RV is the safest, easiest and most cost effective way to go.

Chris, I'm looking to swap my rear (d60 full float) carrier from 32 spline to 35 spline using Yukon axle shafts. How long of a cut to size axle shaft should I purchase? I can purchase 33.5, 36.5, 39.5 or 43" length.

Yea I'm bad when it comes to staying on budget. But, our version of a budget build is much different than others since we have most of the parts here and ready to go. Used, take offs, etc.

Get the BOM# off the axle and use this to figure out what you've got. http://www2.dana.com/expertforms/deabill.aspx
Cross reference the # to parts listing. http://www.billavista.com/tech/pdf_index/files/Axles and Gears/Dana Spicer/X510-2CVSP Dana-Spicer Ford Light Axle Applications Catalog.pdf

You can also get the axle code (in my case D422C) off the sticker in the door jamb and email Dana directly to see what you've got. techservice@dana.com

I sourced my D60 FF from a 2001 E350 van.
Driver side 43811-17 37.64" from inside of flange to spline end
Passenger side 43811-16 34.92" from inside of flange to spline end
