95 f250 front end?

hey guys im picking up this 95 f250 5spd powerstroke but it needs some work. now he says he hit a stump and bent the front end. now i can buy the truck for $1400, my my question is, are the front ends on the 250 a twin I-beam? can i repair this? or skip it and put a D60 solid axle in? and what work is required? or just post what you think is the best idea! thanks in advance!

Yes they are the twin I beam would be better off to out a d60 in it. Work nvolved is go through axle end to end and check over rebuild so you don't have to worry about it might have to regear to match. If you have all the parts springs hardware brake lines everything you could possibly need it take a few hours to swap out. I had the ability to take all the time I needed did in a weekend picking up a few little items as I went. Mine will get alignment tomorrow. It's pretty easy if you have the ability to do the work yourself. Also note the front drive shaft from a tin I beam will not fit a d60 I had mine shortened 1 inch to fit. Some will say you need a f350 with double cardine joint you don't need it might be better but not necessary I'm going to compare since I have obs of each way

Great deal there, go d60, you need trac bar, trac bar mount, springs, axle, steering linkage, pitman arm, and calipers (if equipped with slide pins) good luck

Do not forget to get the u bolt plates too

I was looking at that truck also for parts. If you are thinking about buying it the cost of a dana 60 with everything you need 1000-1500. It's also an icbc writeoff so complete inspection and re vin. It would be cheaper to buy a truck that is aleady on the road and insurable.
