Another Opinion on IFS Mustang II

I am building a 53 chevy 3100 truck. I want to put it on air bags. I need some opinions on which setup you like and why. I have been reading different posts about this, and thought I would stir it up again. I have looked at scotts, no limit engineering, tci, jim wiemer and hiedts. These seem like some of the better ones.
What would you recommend?

Scott Danforth a member over on over on has developed a weld in cross member that keeps the front tires basically at stock width, using GM Metric A-arms and components('78-'88 El Camino, Malibu, Cutlass, Monte Carlo, S-10, Camaro etc.) and you can combine it with a couple of different rack set ups for the steering. Also a member over on HAMB (Junkbike) has Dan Scott's front suspension install on his AD truck w/airbags, looks great & it lays the truck down nicely. The rear of the front fender is about 2.5 inches off the ground with stock spindles..joe

You're not going to find many differences between those manfucaturers when comparing Mustang II front ends. They are all based on the same basic geometry and design premis. Go with reputation first, customer service 2nd, as many american made parts 3rd, and price last.

I am a big fan of the double convoluted bags on a Mustang II. They have a bunch of travel and can easily lay the crossmember on the ground. Just make sure to c-notch the frame for tie rod clearance(most of the kits above include them).
