I'm not sure if this is where I should reply or not. However here goes. I have a 1935 Plymouth 4 door PJ sedan restro rod. I bought a 3" lowered kit from Butches Rod Shop. It came with everything required including the following --- new 3" drop axel, disk brakes(Chevy), new styls shocks, shocks mounts, cross steering rods, Chevy vega box mount. I stayed with the orginal style parralle springs and adapted the orginal sway bar from the Plymouth. I have a Chevy Nova 373 posi gear rear end with a Nova sway bar. This car rides and handles unblieavable with the orginal style springs. I've been on the road for 4 years now. Now the problem here is Butches Rod Shop is out of business, however you can buy all the same setup fron Chassis Engineering. If this helps and you have more questions get back to me. Bill W.
