adapt 94 IFS onto 66 el camino
 
Would it be possible to use an IFS system off of a 94 silverado on a 66 el camino? is the IFS system good for lowering? would i sut bolt the hole system to the fram pretty much? I can get the IFs system for a pretty good price with 70,000 miles on it. My friend is swaping it out for straight axle (wnats to lift it to the moon)


Also this truck is 4 wheel dirve, so along comes the front diff. I can also get my hands on a transfer case? I was thinking i could hook it up for traction? it is an el camino you know... all wheel drive would be sick, its a 14 inch though. Would they need to be the same size diffs? i know the same ratio is mandatory.

nothing is impossible, but given the fact that the trucks suspension is muchhhhhhhhh wider then ur 66 el camino

you can lowwer your stock stuff cheap & w/less trouble & the 94 silverado being a 4x4 swap why would u lowwer it.

sorry personally what your thinking about is a pipe dream.
it could be done but it would take soooo much time & $$$$$ & then to do it correct you would have to swap the whole frame our, which isnt an easy thing to do for a beginner & if you have even seen an early truck like yours on a 4x4 frame yea they may look neat but everyone else will also be thinking WHY did that kid ruin that nice 66 el camino... but then again i did help build a 4x4 68 nova back in 1982 but then only reason we did it was we had a free dead rusted out nova & a rolled 4x4 truck that was just about given to us. we did have fun w/it & the looks we got were great BUT we were also ways asked [SIZE=4]WHY ! ! ! ! ! ![/SIZE] ..........joe

I know what you mean, i dont want to raise the elky. I want it slammed with 4 wheel drive, using the 4 wheel drive as just traction, all wheel drive in other words. But I guess it would be alot of work. I was thinking that whole susupension might just bolt on my frame.. lol. i dont know anything about suspension stuff. I was thinking the front wheel spinning would kind of supress the el camino problem of the light rear.
