The '03-'11 is a bolt in. The '01 will require cutting off your frame and welding the CV frame to yours.

As mentioned before, the OP is long gone and probably does not have an active photo bucket account or whatever he used to post the pictures.

The swap is very simple once you remove the old metal. I took photos of all mine, with numbers, marks and never did a write up. Took hours of video of every basic step in the process, but my videos are rambling messes.

The CV swap is common place now. A search will yield many builds with pics. Here is one.

Yes a shameless plug for my build.

Hi, I have ben reading the crown vic front end swap and came across this picture of your kit. Do you have them for sale and what models will it work for? I have a 1969 ranger f-100 and have been getting it ready for rebuild. I must say this swap looks fantastic. Please email me with any info you have. I have tried to look at original photos but, they will not pull up any more.Thanks for the help.

Hello Rodder44. I have a 1952 F-Series pickup that I would like to upgrade using a 2003-2007 crown victoria front end. Does your kit work with a 1952 truck? I live in south east Florida (North Palm Beach) and I have been trying to locate a complete crown victoria front suspension with no luck. Any suggestions on locating one? Thanks Paul52

Guys, please do business privately, or in the for sale section.
You're gonna get your hand slapped for selling stuff in the wrong forum if you're not careful.
Let's give this guy his thread back.

Not to knock his "kit" but it only cost about $15-25 in metal to make your own.
It will not fit your truck though due to the differences in the frame rail which pitches at a different place on the older ones. I own both a 67 which has the CV fit in, and a 51 and comparing the two is pretty simple for me. I can just park them next to each other to see the differences.
I plan to do the swap myself, and expect to fab up my own pieces anyway. Looks pretty straight forward, other than the CV is so damn wide. Cut out a few inches and weld it back together. I'd never take the welded parts off road though.

Thank you for that valuable feedback Malakilla. I believe that the 1952 frame is the same as the 1951. There is a lot to learn when making these significant changes. Good luck with your 1951 project. Paul52
