chassis Engineering MII suspension

Its to time put front suspension under my 1949 f100. I am leaning toward the bolt on type from Chassis Engineering. Is there any opinions about going this way

If you go that route, make sure to check the torque on all the bolts at regular intervals. The kit looks quite beefy, and I like the lower control arm/strut rod design. It looks like a solid kit.

Not all Mustang II kits are the same. Check to make sure they follow the Mustang II geometry to the letter. Look for tie rod ends that pivot on the exact same plane as the lower control arm, this helps eliminate bump steer. Also look at the upper control arms to see if the front attachment point is higher than the rear, this is an anti dive feature.

I've had a CE bolt-in front end on my '38 Chevy coupe for several years with no problems at all.

Ce Mii

I put a Chassis Engineering (CE) Mustang (M) II under my 39 Chevy about a year ago and have been very pleased with the ease in which it went in, how it sits and how well the car rides. I was also very pleased with the assistance and response from the folks at CE. Before I bought a MII I talked with alot of folks and alot of companies before I made up my mind. I went to alot of shows, listened to the questions asked and the responses the vendors gave to those questions. I was especially impressed with how the CE folks spoke and treated people and the information given to questions. I would even talk with people after they left the vendors to get their opinons and of the vendors and the experience they had with a MII. Of course I also asked owners who had MII's in their cars what they thought. In every case people were very pleased with the CEMII set up.the lots. So when I made the decision to buy the MII I was fairly confident I could get it done. However, what they didn't fully explain was that it is truly easy to install. Read the instructions several times before starting, measure everything several times, write the measurements down and take your time. The CE people are very helpful and responsive and if they make a kit for your truck, buy it.
