Looking for best most cost effecient way to replace the straig ht axle front end with a modern ifs disc brake set up. Leaning against cutting off frame rails in botching in a new front half. Looking for any help from those who have already been here. Keep in mind I am a lowly paid welder . Thankx for any help I can get. This is my first project of this level so I'm a bit green.

Not sure if your model year is valid, but the late model Crown Vic front suspension crossmember and all outboard parts literally bolt into early 70's F-100's. You might look around on some of the Ford Truck boards or google it...

Jag it

I pulled a couple Jag XJ6 front suspensions for $ 100, rears also were $100, Go full jag. You will want the jag brake pedal & M cyl and steering parts There are a lot of jag ed truckes in Aust, New Z , and the UK, also picts on the Hamb or classic truck sites A jag front will drop your front 3 or 4 inches, everything except the upper shock mounts is on the jag front crosmember , some years jags didn't have a brake line 4 yau just lines. Make sure the rotors are good, the rears are a pain to replace. Do a search her on HR , jaguar suspension, lots of posts, pro's and cons, etc. Ford Truck Enthusiasts site has lots of picts and how to into a 48 truck , similar to what you would have to do
