Dana 70 rear axle

I Have a 1985 f250, 6.9L, Dana 70. Can I use a Ford rear axle in this truck. If so, what do I have to look for. Thanks

Where is the fill plug located?

The Sterling axle looks a lot like the Dana 70.

Dana axle fill plug in the rear cover.
Sterling axle fill plug on the drivers side of the pinion on the front of the axle.

Also, make sure everything in the replacement axle matches, spring perch to perch measurements and backing plate, to backing plates can also differ, depending if it came out of a dually, cab and chassis, or regular truck.
