I have a camaro clip that I am going to put under my 51 F-1 this summer. I can measure the width on my 51 and my 69 F-100 if you want. I think it would work since the 72 rear is the same width as a 51 rear

MY 51 f1 jag front suspension

I have a 51 f1 & i am going to put a 85 jag suspension
on it.I have been told that a lot of guys use this & it
is supposed to be one of the easiest installations.
it is supposed to fit like it was almost made for the 51 f1
the 53-56 f100 will use a ford aerostar front clip
if you are going to use the jag clip you want to
use 1970-1986 xj6-xj12-xjs
also go to ford truck enthuiest orjust fte
those guys are great & they can help you
with just about anything

I used a Camaro clip up front narrowed 3". If I did it again I would have saved up and bought an aftermarket setup (looks cleaner, would have saved a couple hundred on ball joints and bushing, steering box is in the way of the alternator. have to fab custom headers...but it was fun). I guess by the time I finish the rear of the car there wont be much left of the original frame at all. I'll be using coil-overs in the rear. QA1 UR4588 look good. I'm shooting in the dark but a #220 spring seems about right. I started this project about a year ago so I'm not that far along.
