I merged the two threads since they are a continuation of the same sentence. Best way to handle a situation like this is to make another post in the same thread rather than starting another thread that will eventually get separated from the first and loose continuity of the discussion.

37chev

I have a 38 chev, when I bought it I didn't know what or how I was going to do it.
It's not that hard to take the body off, made doing the chassis easier.Body floor and frame were sand blasted and epoxied. I used a TCI mustang 11 type kit.Kits are nice, all new parts. I went with power steering, but now regretting it, the cost for hoses, PS bracket,pump, pressure valve etc was about $500, have 1300 mile on the car and the rack leaks. It's easier to steer but still too quick.
I firewall mounted a stainless PS booster and chrome master cylinder, used a GM pedal, try to find one over 16'' long. I don't mind to look, so much real estate on a firewall, but I didn't want any holes in the floor for MC or pedal.
Rear spring , I used chassis engineering kit with a GM 10 bolt rear axle ( all I found of right width and was cheap), I see lots of cars with orignal springs, so if yrs look good and money is an issue use 'em.
