I recently acquired a M715 and want to replace both axles with Unimog axles. I want to know if this can be done or not and what Unimog axles will be perfect for replacing the original ones.

Has anyone done Ford superduty axles? the early (pre coil) ones seem to be pretty close, front spring pads seem to be within an inch and the rear calipers seem to clear the 715 leafs.....

Default Will a 1996 3500 12 valve be a good fit

Prospecting a 1996 3500 srw as a donor truck for my m715 .... Rear axles front axles breaks , steering ... Etc etc ... It is not 4wd ... Would this be worth it to buy the whole truck 128,000 miles ... 2800 for truck in tact ... ? Any advice would greatly be appreciated !

It is posted here somewhere...
But I dont have it handy.
I had to look it up several weeks ago, and wrote it on something, did my tests and moved on.

Let me know if You want the front or rear axle measurement, and I can actually measure what I have sitting on the used parts rack ( 2- stock 70's ) (1- stock 60 ) a newer Dana 70 HD with more splines, 8 lug and drums (1) and a 14 bolt AAM 1050.(disk , with 8 bolt lugs)

One of the latter 2 axles was only 1/2 inch off stock on the perches, I do remember.. and could have used it as is...
If I wanted 8 bolt lugs on the rear and carry 2 spares

I can get those measurments for you in the AM, unless someone has the exact specs handy again.
I think I was using WMS to WMS, and then also the perch width in my tests...
But I slept since then.

one more thing to consider is the "offset" of the pumpkin ( Carrier ).. as they vary from stock as well !
