Default 1990 ford f150 front TTB

I am looking for some advice, I was hit by a car on the freeway started to fish tail to where I don't know how I didn't roll my truck. Not much in body damage, it broke my passenger side locking hub. I had steering issues. Here comes my dilemma, started to dismantle the drivers side had a lot of play wobbled all over the place. Upon dismantling I found my lock out is destroyed, the first lock nut was ripped of the spindle and stuck in part of the lookout. Spindle is stripped, hub is oveled, bearings shot, races destroyed, ball joints loosened. With that much internal damage. Is there any thing on the axle housing I should look for? I am wonderingif iI should switch the axle out. Any advice would be helpful.

Hard to say without looking at it. Plus you'll never notice a bunch of small brackets all bent slightly. Yet it could add up to a larger problem. At this point in time, I would buy a Dana 44 from a late 70's f150 and solid axle it. Pretty straight forward conversion.

I have heard if installing that axle, but not sure where to find one. Not sure what parts I would need to convert in to a solid axle. I want to lift it some, but not much for street driving.

Find the axle at a junkyard, call around, or look in the for sale forums around here.
Post a wanted ad on craigslist.

The conversion, isn't too hard, there are write-ups out there to be found. Search google for TTB to solid axle or some variant of that and i'm sure you'll find some fountains of information.
