are 351W factory forged pistons???

Probably a stupid question but did Ford ever put factory forged pistons in the 351w truck motors like they did in the Fox 302's pre 93? I picked up another completely stock long block from an 89 F250 and was just curious about it for a possible project.

Thanks
Brian

There were no forged pistons in these truck motors.. ever, not even the Lightning.

From what I have read the shortblocks between the regular P/Us and the lightnings were the same. Which is right? I would like to know.
