I have a 1964 step-side that I have installed a volare about 8 years back. I have 1967 short wheel base truck that I want to change to i.f.s. I want a daily driver-the aerostare i.f.s.-it has 302h.o.-ps.-air-pb. I tried 3in dropped spindles -still rode like a truck.

I had an 89 Aerostar van and looked at the way it was constructed. It was a bolt in, in the Aerostar, I don't see why you couldn't use it under the truck for a DD.. Check your frame height to see if the ride height will change. IIRC they have bushing kits and good swaybars and stuff like that for them.

I used to beat the crap out of mine, and it seemed to take all the abuse I could give it. I know the courier services and service companies used them alot around here. That is a statement in itself.

I would not use it if you are using your truck for heavy duty stuff, like towing and heavy weight work. I don't think it would stand up and the brakes are kind of small.

my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example
