34 Dodge front suspension options

I was wondering if anyone out there had any good beta about using the stock IFS on a 34 Dodge 5w. I don't want to immediately cop out for a Mustang II set up. Also, if I just stick with the stock suspension, I don't know what kind of steering rack might be workable with it. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

1934 Dodges ... while being good looking vehicles ... are not rodded as much as the Fords and GM models ( due to the Dodges having a lot lower production numbers in 1934 and are considerably more scarce ) ... so good information is not as available. Most rodders rebuild the stock stuff ( excellent design for the 1930's ) or go modern and do a IFS upgrade.

A rack and pinion conversion is tricky to do ... because everything has to be dead on ... or toe in changes radically when the suspension travels in/down.
I bought a Maval Kit for my 32 Ford ... it is a cross steer rack ..

The two photos above are of the Maval installed on my 1932 Ford project. Maybe a Mavel would work on your Dodge. More photos of the 3W project at http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/jour...ge=1&reverse=1
