Where can I get a ttb drop bracket?

Hey guys,I have an 88 F250 and i have no idea where to find JUST a 4 inch ttb drop bracket. I would need one for the D50 TTB,would one for the half ton ttb work?

This thing sits WAY un-level...about 3 inches lower than the back.....
So I was thinking the 4 inch lift up front and if the front is to high then i would just do a shackle flip/reversal in the back.
BTW,i would be posting all my D50 TTB questions at FTE,but i dont like that sight all that much,you guys are WAY cooler

A couple pics:



Thank you so much guys,everyne here is always awesome

Don't buy a lift for your ttb a dana 60 is a bolt in swap and will be way better.

look up drop brackets from a company that makes the lift kits and call about getting the brackets only. dont email cause they tend not to repond.

might call JBG and ask if they would sell ya a set

a Dana 60 swap would be very costly especially if its not offroaded. just look for a donor F350 and take everything you need from it.

I have heard this a couple times....

What all do i need?
I know a D60,new leafs and shocks,but what els?
Is that it? Would i be able to keep my same steering set up and drive shafts?

I love the sound of a simple D60 swap lol

Im 90% sure all you need it the dana 60 itself and the steering. but I could be wrong.

IIRC the arms on the Dana 50 are longer and require a different bracket than the Dana 44.

Any reputable lift company should be able to get you the drop arms you need. Give them a call.

If you can find a donor F350 with a solid axle for the right price, go for it. They aren't cheap around here because everyone knows what the front axle is worth ($600 - $1000).

I shop in the salvage yard.
