would i even be able to use them? perches and ujoint and such
Lets see... Where to start
06 axle are coil spring front, so you would need coil springs, coil spring buckets, radius arms, radius arm mounts, track bar and some sort of track bar
06 rear axle. it is pretty much a direct bolt in with some new u-bolts. Then you need to adapt the 86 e-brake cables to the 06 axle.
The 99+ trucks use a metric 8 lug pattern 8 on 170mm. 05+ trucks use 17" wheels.
ALOT of work to use those axle
If you REALLY want a good donor truck, PM me. My brother has a 93/93 f350 PICKUP 460, 5speed, 4wd with a Meyers 8' plow he wants 3k for. And it is in pretty good shape. The bed is ROT FREE. He also has a ZF5 from a small block
