John - the open knuckle design didn't exist
until '77, so, you would have closed knuckles, drum brakes, low pinion & pass.
side drop. The D50 would denote a ball joint
assembly, so, I would run away from that. <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">

It would be a closed knuckle design with 30 spline inner and 19 spline outers and a u-joint weaker then a 44 joint.Knuckles are weak design...Basically it is junk..Save your money.Do the hybrid option are look for a ford 60 front with open knuckles,disc brakes produced in 1978.These have the 35 spline inners with 30 spline outer..Beware the early version of the open knuckle ford 60 front used the same crappy small axles with the small joint and weak knuckles(prior to 78)..P.S. according to the spicer catalog it would actually have a dana 44 unless it was produced in late 1973..Hope this helps.
