Ford Excursion and 1999-2004 Ford Super Duty Front Axle Publications




Dana-Spicer 50 and 60 Monobeam front axles were used on 1999-2004 Ford Super Duty® 4x4 trucks. Early F250 and F350 single rear wheel trucks have Dana Model 50-229 axles, while most later F250 and all F350 trucks plus all F450 and F550 models use the Dana 60-248. Servicing either axle is the same with the exception of some different torque specifications. Externally, the Model 50 axle looks virtually the same as a Model 60 even down to the cover size, however the differential components are much smaller. *(most 2003-2004 F-250 trucks will have Dana 60 axles, but some, regular cab F250s with small V8 engine trucks may have Model 50 axles. If in doubt about what parts to order, always provide us with the 6 digit axle tag code.)
