Post 1937 chevy pickup

i would like some pros and cons on weather to stay with a straight axel, or go with a mustang 11 front, always subframed before, so no experience on this. thanks

Why would you want to keep the straight X? Looks? Space problems in engine mounting? Unless you are going for a period piece or fenderless roadster type rig, I would swap out. IMHO

Depends what you're going to use the truck for. If you want a comfortable cruiser then go with a Mustang II kit with the optional tubular "A" arms. If you want a period piece, the straight axle should work fine once all the rest of the components including brakes are replaced.

One other thing... The Mustang may not fit if you're keeping your front fenders. Some 30's cars and trucks just don't have the clearance so check closely.

Good luck.
