Stock frame with a Heidts Mustang II IFS. Power steering with big GM disks. Rear suspension - Dodge Caravan rear springs modified to sit parallel with home made Cal-Trac traction bars. Rear is a '78 Firebird 10 bolt with drum brakes. Rides like a new truck and with the big 11" GM disks up front stops like one too.

This setup is fine, as long as you don't intend to use your truck as a truck and just want a comfortable cruiser.


Top ten reasons racing is better then sex:

1)You're expected to burn rubber, 2) It's OK to be a spectator, 3) There is a pit crew to help you out, 4) The faster you are the better you are, 5) It can last for several hours, 6) It's acceptable to tailgate, 7) You're supposed to finish first, 8) Earplugs are OK to drown out noise, 9) You don't have to kiss the race car, and 10) You get a trophy when your done.
