1/2 to to 3/4 ton brakes?

I am trying to help a guy in British Columbia replace the axle in his 71 F-250 via internet.
He destroyed the housing and is looking for a later model 44 with disc brakes.
He found a 1/2 ton 44 front for $100.00 with the correct gears.
Does anyone here know if the caliper and backing plate is the same between the 1/2 and 3/4 ton Fords?
The axle is a 1978 Bronco.
I know that he would need to rework the perches since his is leaf spring.
any help would be great.
Thanks, Ken

Re: 1/2 to to 3/4 ton brakes?

The F250 brakes should be bigger. I'd think everything from a 3/4 ton Ford D44 would swap right over. I think you will be good so long as it's pre 79. He may have to move the perches but maybe not. If so it's not a big deal.
