hey guys im looking at a f250, the add says its a 78 but she has square headlights so i think it might be a 79, but anyways it shuold be the same answer to my question either way. what axles would this have? would the front be a d44 with the d60 knuckles or whatever it is? and what about rear axle would that be a d60 or 9"?
thanks guys

I would think the F250 would have the D60 front and rear... I could be wrong though... been a while since I looked at 'em...

k, leaves would be easier to lift but coils have a better ride so either way there is pros lol

aaaaaaaaah nope!. some 2" coil spacers can be home made, 2" rear blocks i already have, and a 3" body lift can be made or bought for around $100. so thats a quick 5" lift to make room for some 35s for some axle clearance ;D
