Not hotrod... Ford Van rear axle?

I'm bidding (ebay) on a 2003 E350 ford van with a 7.3 'stroke. I've figured out everything I want to know except the rear axle.

Its (obviously) an 8-lug rear and I assumed it would be a 10.25" Sterling, but some sources are telling me its a 9.75". I had no idea that a 9.75 was ever an 8-lug, but I've never owned the van version.

GVW is 9600. Axle code is C9, but all that tells me is that its a 3.55 posi. I'm not sure I really care which one it is, I just want to know.... ya know?

I am seeing that the 9.75 is a replacement design for the 8.8 in vans and trucks. Only thing I see is it comes as a heavy duty replacement for f 150 E 150 and the like. A 5 lug pattern.I did not see anything with a 9.75 and an 8 lug pattern, only the 10.25 . Door codes tell what ratio and type axle. Anything that starts with a letter is limited slip.There may be more info out there about the 9.25 but I didnt see anything about one used for anything over a 150 rating.
Will this be the new service truck?

from all the research i gathered you have a dana 70 housing machined to fit dana 60 internals.

should be a semi floating and have a 70 stamped in the rib on the passenger side.

the econoline vans only came with the dana axles f series got the sterlings

Dana diff has a 10 bolt rear cover and the Sterling will have a 12 bolt cover. The 9 3/4 was not used in a E350. Anything 99 or newer will actually be a 10 1/2 if its a sterling.

If its a 10 bolt cover,ask for the BM number off the tag or axle tube.
12 bolt cover its a sterling.

There was some Dana 80's used starting around 2000 also.
