Talk to Zabeard, I swear he had a thread just like this but I can't find it, just one about him asking about price guidance.

all full size trucks that have the Dana 44 front has the high pinion.....that would be the F-150 and Bronco with coil springs/radius arms, and a F-250 with leaf springs....

he is running full width.

i will be running full width.

76-77 the C wedges are welded on 78-79 the C wedges are cast on.

If you want to run a radius arm setup either will work, if you want something else, 76-77.

no way to convert a low pinion to a high pinion.

Go full width without question. If you want to run leafs 77.5-79 F250 would be a good source for an axle.

So long as the axles are in working order, yes, that's a very good deal.

It is most likely not a 79 bronco axle if its 8 lug. and specially if it comes with a d60 rear as that sounds more like a f250 combo of axles then that of a bronco.
