if they are anything like the ones on later broncos, no. they are much smaller diameter and i believe have a taper on one or both ends. im not sure if they were that way back in 79 though. are you looking for lift coils? or stock? if stock, i have some stock coils laying in my garage

its hard to tell by these pics, and both of those are lift coils but im sure they are the same diameter.

The coils on the ford are quite a bit smaller in diameter than the dodge coils. Im currently contemplating switching to ford coils as a way to run highsteer when I get around to an axle swap.
