Could anybody tell me when the F150 beams became cast?

Also, before they were cast were they the same design, but forged or were they a completely different design?

not sure exactly when ford got stingy and started casting them, But they were definatley a different design. the cast beams have the ball joints pressed into the spindals, and on the forged ones they are pressed into the I-beam. I had an 89' f150 that had forged beams, and my friend has a 92' f150 with cast beams. so it was somewhere in that time frame if that helps.

GOD BLESS AMERICA! and hopefully my poor truck too.

ok thanks. Seems to be similar to the ranger beams then.
