front f450 super60 in a f350 help

will the dana super60 out of a f450 bolt up to f350, and if so will you also need the f450s steering box? I like the stance and the turning radius of the super 60 and im thinkin it could be a simple swap

it'd work, but you'd have 10 lug front axles and 8 lug rears..you'd be better off buying a f450 or swapping in a older f450 rear, because the 08 f450 rears are having trouble.

Yeah, I've seen topics and posts about the rear end whining and it keeps getting louder and the ends up having to be all rebuilt.

Isn't just the LSD's Dana 110 having issues's or visa versa. I heard it's one but not the other.

What is the difference between the super 60 and a stock dana 60? Doesn't the 1-ton with manual hubs and a manual engaging transfercase come with the dana 60??????

The Dana Super 60's use higher strength steel in their axles and maybe a different pinion. There isn't much info on them. Don't quote me on any of that.
