I believe so, but i'm not 100%

I think most of the F series and broncos through the late 80's were the same

no i don't think they will fit, i believe there is a difference in design between the 70s style and the 80 and up.

yea thats the plan but the front diff (traction beam) i will be using is out of a 88 f150 is there any way these will work? or should i just get a front diff from a 79 or older? (i know the radius arms are different) whats all different on 79 and under?

Use the coils, coil buckets off the frame and all the other parts off the 79. The new stuff is shit and will break. The older axle is much better for wheeling.
