Spent so much time dressing up this Sterling 10.25 dually rear, probably should have just bought a fabricated housing, but then I wouldn't have learned anything. Upper link tabs came out pretty decent

Mods so far:

  • Welded in Dana 60 snouts to convert to full-float 5 x 5.5 hubs and shorten to 70.5" wms to wms
  • Welded tubes to center section
  • Tabbed for lower and upper link mounts
Going to run 4.56 gears with a Detroit Truetrac and 35 spline axles. Hopefully setting up the gears is not a pain, no adjusters, just shims..

Buy or make a setup bearing for the pinion gear and consider using a solid spacer and shims to set the bearing preload. It makes setting up the gears easier imo. It is not particularly hard but it can be tedious.
