    Ok,

    This is not my truck, but something I saw at a local repair shop while passing by.

    Some one stole the bumper? It also needs an alignment really bad.

    someone swapped a solid front end into a truck that was IFS from the factory. looks like the solid axle they put in is too narrow. coil springs are not perfectly vertical. the two springs look like they have a bit of a "V" to them due to the axle being too narrow. and steering geometry is all screwy because of the height of the lift.

    Yup.

    That's a 79 F150 front axle which was "backyarded / welded" into the truck. The welding was done ...... incorrectly offset , to where the entire axle is shifted approximately 2" to the passenger side, as well as the coils being "v" style in position. The shocks were installed upside down as well.

    The guys at the shop said it appeared to be unsafe to drive at speeds > than you could produce beyond the parking area of the shop.

    Normally the truck had 44" mud boggers on it, but it couldn't be repaired with them in place..
