Your 150 should be twin I beam, no drop spindles but there are drop I beams. A little pricey but the way to do it right. I believe there are DJM, AIM, and Belltech.

77 f150 drop spindles

yes, twin i-beam i have heard that the spindles are made somewhere but havent been able to track any down. i was looking at the djm i-beams but heard that after a few years they rust out from the inside. although this will be a summer only truck i wouldnt think i would have that problem. im gonna keep looking but i cant believe ya cant get even 2" drop spindles being that these trucks are so popular. thanx guys for your response guess i have to spend more time on the net

The only way i know to drop your truck would be replacing the I-Beams with new drop beams. You can buy the kit to do it depends on how much you want to spend, But i think thats what it's going to take to get lowered.JMO

ford f150 spindles

i planned on getting the DJM dream beams but they are only a 3" drop and i dropped the back 5 1/2" there is only a 2" factory rake so it would be a 1/2" higher in the front. i guess my only other option is to go lower profile with the front tires or from another website i was looking at they said you could take up to 1/4 coil off the front springs before it will screw with the geometry. id have to look a little deeper into that one before i did it though. tom
