Do you mean solid axle up front? If so it wouldn't be that hard. If you get one from a yard make sure to get everything that is under there.

If you find an 80's 250-350 with the solid front it would make it easier (except for the 8 lug part lol). The frames were the same so locatating the spring shackels is a snap. As for the lug thing the rear springs and axle are also a direct bolt in. The hevier rearends use the larger u-jionts like the Bronco but that is also easily fixed.

Looks to me like something i can look into lately. My truck either has to have a timing chain or a new distributor gear. so i am trying to get it back to running properly before i do anything suspension related.
