When was the cut off for early/late 99?

I have a 99 F-250 built 2/99. Which I have been told is a late 99. It has all the late 99 engine parts. I needed to replace the front sway bar bushings. A guy I work with had given me the ones he had taken off his truck when it was new and he installed a lift kit. His was an 02. So one day I had I went to swap them out and found them to be longer links and with larger bushings. So orderd a bushing kit. Went to install and found the same problem. Kit said it covered 99. Did some research and found that there was another kit for the 99's, ordered and it was the correct kit. Installed and now finally that clunk is gone. Just curious if my sway bar was a leftover. I know Ford had done it before. Had a late build 94 with 93 motor mounts.

Thanks

Engine build date?? I believe it was 12/7/98... You should have a late 99. Go out and count the bolts on the turbo compressor housing. 4 bolts = early, 5 bolts = late.

Chassis cutoff for early/late was 3/99 I believe.

Like I say, I 3/99 might not be right. I won't argue the part about you (or your truck) being a freak

Compressor side has 5 bolts.

Like I said it has (had) the late 99 airbox, had foil on the drivers side boost tube.
Just was curious about the chassis. The first bushing kit I bought and sent back, they called me up and said it was the correct one for my truck. I told it was not the correct one and they didn't stock the one I needed, and asked them to credit me. Which they did.

after 12/??/98 is the late 99 engine
after 3/15/99 is late chassis
So you should have a late 99 engine, and an early 99 front end.
I THINK?????

You definitely have a late 99 engine... The chassis part I have no idea about.

[quote=rat49f6;8660016]The confusion lies in the fact that they changed engine configuration in jan and they changed the front suspension configuration in mid march.

Thanks Frank. Just curious about the chassis date because I believe my engine build date is 3/4/99, I'll have to check tomorrow.

Do you mean the door sticker build date is 3/4/99. I believe that would be your chassis build date. Im not sure where the engine build date is located.
Which brings up a good question....Since International built the engines, but Ford installed them. Did the engines come from Navistar with the late 99 equip, bigger turbo, injectors...ect, or did Ford install these items on the line?
I know its kind of obvious by looking at the engines the difference between the early and lates, but if Ford did infact install the turbo, injectors and such, then the assembly date of the engine really wouldn't matter. It would be the date that Ford made the switch on the line as to if you have a late or early engine (3/15/99 ???)
Get where im going?
