Does anyone know if F100 dropped I beams work for our vans? Or if anyone makes dropped I beams? Would love to lower my van and just can't find much online on whether this is possible or not.

Might give the DJM suspension guys a call and even if the F100 beams don't fit maybe they can make some.

I have researched this for my 3rd gen. I don't know if it is is a problem for the 2G trucks but I was told the existing DJM beams have the wrong track width for me. DJM had nothing for me about a year ago when I contacted them.

Only other option I know some Ford speciality shops do is heat the beams and bend them. Nobody around my area will do it though. Hard to find someone that does this.

Thanks for the replies, seems like it's just too much of a headache than it's worth.
