F100 suspension compatibility Question
 
I searched a bit and think I got my answer but I just wanted to make sure, I have a 68 F100 2wd and it has drum brakes all around. My question is can I put the front suspension from a 76 F100 on it? They are both twin I-Beam, but the 76 has ball joints and disc brakes, I can get the whole donor front suspension for pretty cheap just trying to make sure before I buy it.

I'm 90% sure the frames are the same, so you just need the beams, and spindles/ associated hardware and bolt it up

Thank you, I went to the Pick-n-pull this morning and removed the entire front suspension from a 78 F100, the twin I-beams seem identical to our original ones, we got everything springs and brackets included but we are probably just going to swap the I beams as this seems to be the easiest route, if we cant just get the kingpins out to swap hubs.
I'll post pics
