Default 1968 international 1200

working on a small resto on my uncles truck. the body is mint shape and runs great. hasnt been moved in 15 years. he wants to make it street runner again and that means new axles or brakes. he has it in his head to replace the axles and run disk's all around. im ok with that as well since they old set up is not off the shelf parts.

the truck is a 2 wheel drive.

the rear looks like a full floater big 5 lug dana 60.

if i were to go about replacing the the axles i would need new rims and tires. not that big of deal since they are wasted anyhow with no spair rim for the truck. i would like to get some newer axles in the truck with spair off the shelf parts.

being the truck is 2 wheel drive what front axle beam should i use?

someone was telling him a mid 80s chevy axle would bolt right in. i dont wanna do that as it would have to be a 4x4 axle in a 2wd truck.

what axle beam should i go about using to get newer parts at a affordable price?

what about making a front axle out of tubing and putting the inner C's and knuckles from another axle?


open to ideas here guys. give me some input please

Using a ford 450 seres front axle would work. you would wanna change the outers so you can run 8 lug wheels other then the sterling bolt pattern. I'm assuming you wanna keep it a heavy truck. would love to see pics of this thing

it was a rainy day when i saw it. they just pushed it out of the barn to make room for some other stuff. i will get some pics next time i see it or see if he can send me some pics from his ipad. it is a mint truck

as for the topic of keeping it heavy isnt such a big deal. all it does it get driven around. would like to keep it atleast a 3.4 ton truck

The GM HD trucks used a beam axle, I'm guessing that was what they were talking about. I think all the way up to early 90's. It will probably have dually hubs on it thought

Just saw this. If ur ass is so puckered u don't see a joke in front of u then take that old axle n shove it straight up ur ass next to the 4X4 that's most likely already there

Stick with international parts! And consider scout 11 drive train and 4wheel drive. Have seen this swap befor its almost bolt in....
Other than that buy the parts to fix the breaks you have parts are still out there
