Did the 1997 (or any year for that matter) F-250 OBS trucks, HD or otherwise come with a solid axle or do they have the IFS front suspension that the F-150's have?

Thanks in advance!

Its like the one of the f-150s but its a leaf sprung axle and is a DANA 50, I believe the ones on the f-150s were DANA 44s. Only way it had a solid axle is if it was swapped in.
