Hi Gary! Welcome and congrats on your impending retirement. I'm currently building a 55 Chevy shortbed stepside 3100 as well, but using a TCI Mustang II kit. Anyway, do a search in the suspension forum, there are a number of threads about Nova/Camaro/Volare clips, you shouldn't have any trouble.

Keep us informed and post some pix!!

Happy ho ho hotrodding!
Antny

nt suspension for the ole '55

Hi Gary,
I am just starting on a '55 3100 shortbed. The seller of the '55 thru in
a early Chevy front suspension. But, after a little research, I agree with
one of the early posts mentioning the Mustang II suspension. 1974 to 1978
seem to be very good years..(IF you like Ford) Not a lot of major welding
and cutting.
Also, a 350" Chev and a 700R4 might be the way to go.... Great combo....
Good luck...
Best regards, Steve
