Default Question about Dana 44s

When it comes to monobeam Dana 44s on 70's Ford trucks, do broncos and f-150s have the set up with radius arms? And the the f250s and f350s have the set up with leaf springs right? Just tryin to get this all figured out. learnin as I go.

In general, yes. The F350s should be a Dana 60 front. There were a few models of F250 that also had a 60 front (I know I had a club cab camper special/sno fighter that was a stock 60 front), but most 250s are 44s.

I think there was also one version of F150 that had leaves, but I forget the wierd details on it.

yes, the supercab 4wd f150's had leaves, 2wd supercab's had coils but different rate coils. like above, 150's had 5 lug 44, 250's had 8 lug 44's, 350's had 60's up front. also, the ealry 70's, up to maybe 75 or 76, had the closed knuckle 44's, not ideal.
