As a Forum Moderator here, I would like to WELCOME YOU HERE....

I have had F-100's and F-1's most all of my life and I do not ever remember seeing dropped spindles for one. Mainly because of the reasons you listed. Dropped axles, reverse eye springs and the like......

Old school was MorDrop axles and reverse eye springs ......I did that to my 56 F-100. But ended up clipping it with a Chevelle front....to get it low enough and get PS and disc brakes at the same time. This was in the early 70's...

Again......WELCOME...
