This is a very complete kit to install a 2005+ front axle, suspension and steering in your 1967 - 1979 F250 2wd pickup. It has the affect of raising the front end of your truck quite a bit which is necessary for clearance of the engine crossmember. The picture with the tape measure held to the fender is with a 33" tire and oem 2005 SD springs.

 

You will need to check my fitment guide (see link below) to make sure you purchase the correct version. I have four variations of this kit to cover the various frame changes from 1967-72 on F250 2wd trucks. The only difference is the radius arm brackets, all else is the same.

 

This kit is designed to be as close to bolt in as possible and uses existing factory drilled bolt holes and rivet holes. With the right planning and preparation, this can be a weekend project. The handling, ride quality and braking of your truck will be dramatically improved going to a Super Duty Dana 60 and coil suspension.

 

These brackets are laser cut, cnc bent, welded, and powdercoated right here in the USA. I have spent 6 months and many prototypes designing these so they would be nothing short of the highest possible quality.

 

I include plates to add a 2005-07 (and early 08) Super Duty steering gear box. Your factory power steering won't work. The steering conversion requires drilling 3 holes and welding the included plate to the frame rail in front of the crossmember.

 

I have a thorough write up on the conversion process here on my website. Please read through this before ordering. Written instructions are only on my website, not printed. See this page:

I have a fitment guide for you to figure out if this will fit your F250. If you have anF150 or an F350, this will not fit!

Recently I have made a new gallary page with dozens of pictures:

Radius Arm Bracket Type:

The difference between the two radius arm bracket options is only in the bolt pattern. All of them have a 5 holes to match the factory hole pattern, but the earlier ones have a tighter together grouping, later ones slightly furhter apart grooping of these holes.

Some 1973 trucks don't have any hole pattern on the veritcal frame surface and need F25C

Most 1973-1976 trucks seem to have the "F25b" hole pattern on the frame

Most 1977 to 1979 trucks seem to have the "F25a" hole pattern on the frame

Some 1976 trucks may have the later F25b pattern.

Most 1968-72 trucks don't have these oem drilled holes, and need "F25c"

1975-76 supercabs seem to need either "F25B" or "X25B" depending on the frame contour

1977-79 supercabs seem to need either "F25A" or "X25A" depending on the frame contour

 

Feel free to send me a picture of your frame rail, about 18" behind the front cab mount.

 

Standard Hieght vs Drop Version:

A standard height version raises the truck significantly to allow for clearance of the engine crossmember. The "drop" version still raises the truck a lot, just 3" less and requires cuttng and welding of your engine crossmember.  The drop version has more of a factory 4wd appearance rather than a lifted appearance.

 

The drop version has radius arm brackets that are tighter to the frame. The radius arms are less ovciously visible. This makes for a cleaner appearance that is not obviously swapped, at least at first glance.

 

The orange 1975 F250 crew cab is pictured with 33" tires and the drop version conversion kit in the above link of pictures of swapped trucks.

 

The big down side to this kit is that it requires cutting and welding of your engine crossmember, front and back. It is much easier to do this without an engine in the vehicle.

 

The other down side is that you may need an adjustable track bar. I recommend testing out the converion with an oem Super Duty track bar, and if the axle is not centered your best solution will be to get an adjustable track bar bracket.

 

In general if you want to have 37" or larger tires, go with the standard kit. Smaller tires, go with the drop kit.

 

Supercabs- the X25 radius arm brackets for now only come in standard height, which sit lower belwo the frame. The frame has more material down low here so there is not 3" of upward movement to be had. If every bit if ground clearance is important to you, I can make a version that holds the radius arm as close to the frame as possible which is only a change of about 1.5 to 2 inches. 

 

 

Included parts:

Control arm / radius arm brackets, welded and powdercoated black

Coil spring buckets with provision for shocks, welded and powdercoated black

Track bar bracket with machined soacer

Plates and spacers for 05-08 steering box conversion

Machined rod ends and lock buts for 1.5" DOM tube and a left hand tie rod end for the pitman arm to SD tie rod end connection

Hardware- a LOT of hardware and all high grade. For spring buckets, control arm brackets, steering conversion, track bar, control arms, etc.

Brake line parts (not the brake lines) and fittings

 

 

Parts you need to purchase separate (all off of 2005+ Super Duty):

Bump stops- see the instruction page

Front axle

Coil springs (factory height SD shocks work with factory height SD springs)

Shocks

Control arms (commonly called radius arms)

Steering box and arm (factory height SD pitman arm works with factory height SD springs)

Section of 1" ID 1.5" OD dom tubing such as TU1031 from summit racing

Rubber flexibe brake hoses

Track bar

Outer tie rod end that connects to pitman arm steering bar

Wheels and tires (metric pattern and at least 17" wheels)

 

I highly recommend replacing ball joints, tie rod ends, track bar bushing and ball joint while you are doing this project.
