80 to 86 f150 drop tech

Ok so IV been looking and I'm finding nothing for the front. Now spindles no beams nothing. Now I know the beams from a 80 to 86 have the ball joints in the beams and 86 to 96 have the ball joints in the spindles. That being said I would asum that I could use every thing from a 87 up and use drop beams but drop beams mean I have to redo all my bag mounts. I also have a friend that has this set up and I don't like how much it twist the bags up.... All that being said what are my options? I was thinking old school solid I beam or late model town car front frame clip moded in. What have you guys seen and any pics would be awesome! Thanks for any help you guys can give.

i did a 66 (i think) f100 that had a dropped solid beam front suspension (not like the 80s ford ibeams).. built a 4 link an panhard bar and laid it out on bags, it was def cool but probably the biggest pain in the ass ive ever dealt with.. id def swap in something with a-arms
