    No, only on half tons and 2WD trucks. All the Super Duty 4x4's have a solid front axle, with either leaf springs,(up til 2004), or coil springs, 05-present.

    it dpends on the truck..here is a little more info....

    79 and earlier 4wd, all trucks solid axle

    F150 80-96 independent TTB for 4wd, twin Ibeams for 2wd
    F250 80-96 independent TTB for 4wd, twin Ibeams for 2wd, some could get solid

    F350 80-85.5 independent TTB for 4wd, win Ibeams for 2wd, some could get solid

    F350 85.5 - current, solid axle 4wd (dana 60 or 50 dependin on year) solid I-beam was most common for 2wd

    hope that helps

    oh yeah starting in 92, the solid axle 4wd got ball joints, ealrier had king pins

    BTW this is off the top of my head...with a little vodka buzz....so there is goofy things i mised as ford did weird things that i can't remem, but this is the common stuff for 90% of the trucks
