Too bad Ford didn't use their excellent Twin I-beam front end. That was, in my opinion, the only truck IFS that was ever worth a damn. Everything else, including current Fords, are like Chevy's front end - unreliable and fragile.
Friends and I always referred those as the 'Ford Floppermatic"! We were just being kids. If a bomb went off under those, the only thing left would be the I-beams and radius arms. Solid design, but also had its limitations.
