Show use some courtesy and use punctuation. Run-on sentences are annoying to alot of us.

To your question... 2WD or 4WD? Try filling out your signature so we know what your working with and we don't have to ask you that question.

Either way, a salvage yard is your best bet.

If I have to replace it, where can I get one: 1977 Ford F150 4WD
Please, when asking questions, list all the pertinent info. I read thru some of your other posts, discovered your truck has 4WD / 2WD parts are not the same!

D6TZ-3A360-A (replaced C6TZ-3A360-A & B) .. Radius Arm ~ Right/Left is the same / Obsolete

Applications: 1966/76 F100 4WD / 1966/77 Bronco / 1975/77 F150 4WD

No Ford Dealer or obsolete parts vendor has any.
-----------------------------------------------
C6TZ-3A360-A =

GREEN SALES CO. in Cincinnati OH has ONE = 800-543-4959.

I saw U-haul on ebay has 2 new ones but they must be 2wd as the # is the same except for the last letter which is a C.

Rossta86 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
The areas where the bushings ride at the frame mount end of the radius rod were "wallowed" out on my 1978 4WD F150. I laid down a few beads and then ground the welds down smooth. I have had no issues thus far, but I would hate to see the aftermath of a failure, therefore take my advice at your own risk.

1978/79's use different radius arms. Notice that the applications for D6TZ-3A360-A are 1966/77.

No such Ford part number of D6TZ-3A360-C / Look at it again, it's either D4TZ-3A360-C or D8TZ-3A360-C .. as these are the only radius arms used in the 1970's w/a C suffix.

Neither is correct for the OP's truck.

Probably an error on their part then, I imagine when you list that many parts it would be easy to make a mistake

Ford Arm D6TZ3A360C | eBay

You may need to copy and paste that link but I tried it and it takes you right to it

I removed the dashes, replaced them with ampersands: Does this make the applications clearer?
