Check Isuzu chassis for early rods

We've had many many discussions about putting mini truck frames under early rods (both full fendered and open wheel cars) and I've usually been the first to warn against them...due to the cluttered and often ugly appearance, especially for open wheel cars. But I may be changing my tune after seeing this thread new project

Since some of you don't read the "Lounge/Introductions" forum I thought I'd cross post this to "suspensions" for those of you who might have missed it. The Isuzu is the first mint truck frame I've seen that might have some real potential for even an open wheeled rod.

Here is one pic of erni's frame from that thread.

Thanks for moving this here, Dewey.

I don't frequent the Lounge all that much - the rest of the forums already take up too much of my time at work.

Pretty interesting stuff. Only thing I would like to change if the frame was on an open-wheeled car is what appears to be the shock tower mount - effective but sort of ugly.

Otherwise, it looks like that suspension has a lot of potential, at a low price, and it isn't all that unattractive.

Seems from the other thread that this is a torsion bar setup?

the Izuzu pickups are the same as S10 Pickups, at least in the later years I'm shure of, not shure about '92

must be just the later '94 up Izuzu's then. I know in those years they are the same, altho grills are diffrent, the rest is the same. my friend at the boces auto tech class I take is bringing in his '92 Izuzu truck for some work pretty soon. we have a '90 S10 blazer that has no motor in it sitting outside the shop. I'll check for what diffrences they have exactly.
