By doing an internet search on the Bill of Materials number, we figured out the axle was from a '93 or '94 Ford F350. Immediately after that, we found that the stock tie rod was mounted lower than our M-715's tie rod and the stock Ford part was bent to clear the differential cover. We were loathe to lose tie rod clearance, and with near 8,000 lbs of truck any bend or rock hit could lead to disaster real quick. The stock Ford knuckles don't have any provision for a high-steer setup, nor is there an easy was to bolt high steer arms to an OEM ball joint knuckle.
