cab chassis vs regular pickup suspension????

i found a 99 f350 cab and chassis 2wd dually and want to know if the front suspension is the same as a regular pickup. and I'm pretty sure the rear axle is different on the cab and chassis but would i be able to put a single wheel axle on?

I don't know 2wd's very well, but I would think the front end would be the same, but I know for a fact the rear springs, frame, and axles are diffrent from std bed trucks, be they dually or SRW.

From what little I do know about a 2wd, I would think that you would have to change the rotor, as I beleive they are one peice with the hub (like on my van), in which your front wheel berring races are in.... you could most likely replace the dually style rotor/hub with a SRW rotor/hub, but be sure to compare them side by side, to be sure the rotor/berring relationship is the same, to make sure the rotor is centered in the caliper properly.

They are likely NOT like the dually 4x4 trucks, which just have an adaptor bolted onto the hub assembly, so converting to standard wheels on the front is as simple as unbolting the adaptor, and installing the standard SRW rim/tire.
