im currently weighing all my options for either a 6 or 8 inch suspension lift, and at the same time considering a SAS in the front end, and a swap to a 9'' rear, that being said, other than finding a parts truck F350 (which im pursuing a few), where would be a good local place to source either a Dana 44 solid front axle, or a Dana 60 SFA, and a ford 9''?
and where could i go to talk in person to a knowlegable person about my lift questions?
the closer to Monroe the better, but distance isnt much of an issue provided its in the snohomish/king/peirce county areas
Ya got one here- I did the swap on an 84 F250, and yours is way easier. They even make a kit for it, it's just not marked as being for your truck. You want to get a 78-79 F150 or Bronco 4x4, those years ONLY. Then get whatever height lift kit you want for the donor truck, and install all parts in your truck. You will need to fab a locating link mount on the frame for the front axle, but otherwise it's almost entirely bolt&go.
If you want it professionally done, let me know.
Here's a 79 Bronco in Snohomish Co. for cheap: http://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/bar/391484061.html
