Dually Swap

Hi Guys and Gals I'm swapping out rear diff on my 2000 E350 Van from a single wheel full floating assy to a dually full floater. Anybody know if the spring perches on a 1999 F350 dually pick up are the same distance apart as a 2000 E350 van?

not sure but i can measure mine tomorrow for you since i happen to have a 99 f350 in both single and drw. w.e you do remember if the truck is a commercial cab and chassis, the chassis will be narrow compared to regular pickups just some thing to look out for when your picking the bone yard

Boy that would be great. I've got one spotted on craigslist at a very good price and would hate to miss it. It's listed as a Super Cab but the picture only show a bare frame.
Thanks

Thanks but it's not gonna work. The van spring c/c is about 4" wider and backing plate to backing plate is almost 3" wider. That means if I used a
F series rear end the inner tire would be very close to the inner fender well.
Back to the drawing board!

Have you looked into changing to a longer wheel stud and using dual wheels on your van? You may need a spacer for wheel well clearance not sure on that.

Thanks guys. I have been looking at this site. They make a steel adapter for both front and rear. That being said I'll just replace my front rotors and that will take care of the front. After checking out the rear I think I will go with a set of adapters. The wheel bearings are the same in both a dual set up or a single wheel set up so that shouldn't be of any concern. The springs are the same width so that won't be a problem. It would appear the a single wheel axle assy is basically the same as a dual wheel set up. Fender are available from
a couple of places.
We'll see.

Well I guess I won't just replace front rotors with duaally rotors. Needs special hub also. I'll look into spacers.
