front disk brake conversion

does anyone know what the difference is between the front axle on my 59 f350 and the front axle of a 59 f100 is? i can buy a power disk brake conversion for a 59 f100 but i dont know if there is any major difference between the two that would allow me to use that same kit. any advice would be helpful.

I believe F350's have different spindles than the F100's but can't swear to it. I do know that the F350 brakes are heavier in general. F100 uses an eleven inch drum where the F350 uses a 12 1/8 drum with bigger wheel cylinders and master as well.
