SOURCE: wheel bolt pattern

According to everything I can find, yes.
It's a 5x114.3 bolt pattern (or 5x4.50)
However, your offset (from where the wheels bolt on to the edge of the rim) might be a little different depending on the wheel.

SOURCE: Will a rear end out of E350 Ford interchange with a Chevy 3500 dually

Is the c/k 3500 4 wheel drive?If it is 4WD,you must retain the same gear ratios for both front and rear axles,or the transfer case will be damaged.If it is 2 wheel drive,you can install any gear you like.I believe the Ford E350 rear axle is a Dana 70,as i have rebuilt 2 of that model,along with Dana 60's.The Ford unit likely will not be a bolt in.It will probably require professionally welding new mount brackets on the Ford axle housing.The width needs to be measured from inside the brake backing plate to the other brake backing plate to see if it will physically fit.Good luck.

SOURCE: How do I replace the ring gear and pinion in my 68 Camaro 12 bolt

You can change the ratio back to 4.10. However, if you do not already have the specialty tools required to do the job, you will likely be better off finding a shop that will change the gears for you. A mistake as simple as incorrect backlash will result in destroyed ring & pinion gears.

Your cheaper options will be :
1. Find a matching rear-end with 4.10 gears and swap it in.
2. Purchase the ring and pinion, master install kit, and find a friend that has installed gears before to help you out.
3. Find a 4x4, Hotrod or auto shop that is will swap the gears for you. If the axle is in the car, it's usually more expensive than if you carried the axle in for them to work on.
4. Purchase R&P, Master install kit, all the required tools. Then hit the books to find the proper procedure and measurements for that axle.

Good Luck.

Testimonial: "Thank You very much for the info. I thought you could just change the gears without any other adjustments."

I have a 98 Ford E150 conv. van need to replace complete rear end need to figure out which one I have and what yr will interchange and if a truck rear end work or only a van


Hello Brenda...you will find some identifying information on the actual real axle casing. Stamped numbers, I.D. tag or you can search your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) or make, model year and series on the internet to see what options were available for rear end gearing ratio's.

Yes you should stick with a similar or identical rear end to ensure proper mounting bracket alignment and gear ratio choices. Dana Model 60, 70 & 80 Axles are not internally identical.

Looks like the standard differential carrier for the E150 is a 8.8" (*10 bolt). Standard, Includes Spider gears, 31 spline, 7/8" shaft.

* Ten Bolt - The rear end cover plate contains 10 mounting plate bolt holes.

-->All AMC 20s have a 8 7/8" R&P and use a 29 spline shafts. The AMC 20 R&P is 3/8" bigger than the Dana 44, but it uses smaller shafts, smaller axle tubes, and the CJ version comes with weaker two piece shafts. The AMC20 uses a 29 spline shaft where as the later Dana 44 uses a 30 spline shaft. The AMC 20 housing tends to flex a lot which can cause breakage. This can be remedied by welding the tubes and/or adding gussets. The reason the AMC 20 flexes more than the Dana 44 is the shorter differential housing and smaller axle tubes. It's other flaw is the CJ version uses the two piece axle made up of a hub and a shaft. The hub end tends to break off under load which has created the market for one piece AMC 20 axle shafts. Unfortunately, the shafts are expensive ($350+ USD) and in some cases a special bearing must be used.
amc20co_.gif -->Identifying the gear ratio of an AMC 20 is a bit tricky. Dana axles normally have a tag on the left of the diff cover with the gear ratio at the time of build. The AMC axles have a code that has to be looked up in a table. The code is stamped on the housing boss to the left of the diff cover right near the axle tube. Good part about the stamp is it tends to stay readable longer than the tag, but you have to know the code. Since there are conflicts between what a code means for a narrow track and what it means for a wide track, don't count solely on the code to identify an axle. Bring a tape measure or know the source of the part. Specs Narrow Track AMC 20 Code Gear Ratio Diff Type AA 2.73 Open DD 2.73 Trac-Lok BB 3.31 Open CC 3.31 Trac-Lok A 3.54 Open N 3.54 Trac-Lok GG 3.73 Open Q 3.73 Trac-Lok L 4.10 Open M 4.10 Trac-Lok Wide Track AMC 20 Code Gear Ratio Diff Type D 2.73 Open DD 2.73 Trac-Lok B 3.31 Open BB 3.31 Trac-Lok A 3.54 Open AA 3.54 Trac-Lok H 3.73 Open HH 3.73 Trac-Lok C 4.10 Open CC 4.10 Trac-LokThe Trac-Lok is a limited slip differential. You may have to scrape away a lot of mud, paint, and rust to uncover the code. If you can't find the code on the rear, check the tag on the front axle. Both axles should be geared the same. The R&P ratio ranges supported by the carriers are 2.73 and 3.31-5.13. The 5.13 gear ratio is not available for the Dana 30 though, so it is rare to see it. 4.56s are the lowest common ratio between the Dana 30 and AMC 20. 5.13s are available for the Dana 44.
CJ AMC 20 The CJs used two versions of the AMC 20, the narrow track from '76-'81 and the wide track from '82-'86. Both versions use keyed, two piece shaft/hub design and 5 on 5.5" wheel bolt pattern. Supplies of AMC 20s were exhausted in 1986 and some Dana 44s were used instead in the last of the CJ-7s.
From 1976-1978 a larger 11x2" drum brakes was used on the AMC 20. After 1978, a 10x1.75" drum was used.
SJ AMC 20 The Wagoneer and full size Cherokee also used a narrow and wide track version of the AMC 20. Both SJ versions used once piece shafts and 6 on 5.5" wheel bolt pattern. Since the length and bolt pattern is different from the CJ version, the SJ shafts are not compatible without resplining and redrilling. I've never heard of anyone going to the trouble.

Bird Rear-end Size


Hi meduck4,heres what you need brother as I cant see your diff, 3 ways to tell what you have:
#1 The first is the driver's door tag; there will be a one-letter or one-numeral axle code listed there. You can then compare it to the chart below: CODE Rear Axle Ratio Conventional Locking 8 M 2.73 Y Z 3.08 F R 3.45 5 E 3.27 6 W 3.73
#2 The second is the axle tag, attached to the lower lefthand bolt on the rear axle itself. The bottom left line will give you the gear ratio, and the type of rear end (S for limited slip non-locking, and L for locking).

#3 The 7.5" rear axle height is shorter than the width and the shape appears "oval".
The 8.8" rear axle
dimensions are equal and the shape appears "round".

This will tell you what you have my friend,good luck
