    i have a 1993 f150 fwd. i got it when my uncle died. he had a plow on it but when you put it on and lift it up the tires point in because of the ifs in the front, i have a 1992 f250 i wanted to take the axles out of and put in my truck. but that truck has same front axle only leaf springs instead of coil. with the tires still point in with the plow or no?
    thanks if anyone can help!

    Try heavier coils and timbrens, make sure you run enough ballast. Fisher plow?

    the new front end has leaf springs, not coils

    The 150 has coils now, correct? You can swap out heavier coils and timbrens to help with the weight. Alot easier than the axle swap. Running the right amount of ballast will help also.

    So,what your saying is that you switched from a TTB dana 44 front to a dana 50 solid axle front on your f150?Or do you want too?
    I'd live with the ttb and get bigger coils for the front.

    simply put, yes, what you want to do can be done.
    but it will cost a lot more money than it is worth doing.
    you will be better off getting stronger front coil springs, and a set of air bags to go inside the springs.
    this way when you remove the plow, all you need to do is let the air out of the air bags.
