10.25 Sterling Disc Brake Conversion

I plan on doing a disc brake conversion on my donor 10.25 Sterling from a 1986 F-350. What are the best model/year axles to get parts from to accomplish this? There are a few junk yards around here I could get the parts from but would like to make the swap as painless as possible. The axle is currently on sawhorses so the conversion will be easier. Looking for advice from people have done this before. Thanks!

I remember something about the Dana 60 in the vans but that's it.

Maybe someone else will chime in.

No bolt-on axles available. Econo's use the Dan 60 disc brake axle with the same 8x6.5" wheel. You could try cobbling a d-60 Econo set together. 99+ Superduties use 8x170mm wheel spacing so can't use those rotors. Best:

Buy these:

Ford Sterling Disc Brake Bracket 84-94 - RuffStuff Specialties


Then use '73-'87 3/4 ton CHEVY 4x4 front calipers, and '96 E350 van rear rotors.


I did this on a D70 I have and it came out great!

Looks like I might be going this route. I might try to source the rotors and calipers new than trying to gamble on something that has been sitting in a junk yard for a few years.

I didn't plan on having one since my truck is an automatic. However I would guess that a drive shaft or differential lock would be needed.
