Hi, welcome, if you look at this post, it gives a very good intro to searching the site for information. I saw a number of posts about F250 rear ends and they are easy to find if you understand how to use the advanced search feature here. I am sure others will be able to tell you straight off what to use but it is good to be able to find stuff with a search rather than waiting for an answer sometimes.

Long live the darkside and those with the courage to travel there.

Welcome to FTE! We would love to see pictures of your truck.
Here is an article on rear suspensions.
1953 - 1956 F100 Rear End Selection and Rear Suspension Lowering .: Articles
Well that is focused on F100's though. Our F250's well, the F250 rear end up to 1972 are about a straight fit. I can't remember the years exactly....

Could we see some pictures? Here is how.


But I got ta say becoming a supporter is the fastest and easiest way to post pics right from
your whatever pad/cell thing or home computer.
Few of us look in the users Gallery or album as you can see by your recent visitors.

It seems awkward, but whenever you "insert a picture" to one of these threads, the forum is looking for the picture somewhere on the web (which is always available) rather than from somewhere on your hard drive (which isn't always available).

While you're making a post on FTE, select the pic you want to post from your Photobucket album. When the large version of the pic is open, right mouse click on it and select "View Image Info". The image info will be highlighted and will look something like this:
The best photos and videos | Photobucket

Copy that highlighted info (right click / copy).

When you have the spot in your post where you want the pic to be placed, select the "Insert Image" icon at the top of the post (looks like a mountain) and paste (right click / paste) the image info you copied in the highlighted box (just shows "http://" when it opens).

Your pic will be placed in the post.

Hope that helps.

Here's a tutorial Bob put together: http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/67...-pictures.html Bob's link is not working. Can someone in the know tell me why?

How to upload pictures to the FTE Forums. - YouTube. Thanks Sam Rusty_Old_F250. Best we can find is that this video was done by Gundown64
