Corvette Suspension Conversion in here ...

I am seriously considering the C4 'Vette front suspension conversion for my 1953 F100.

Who has it and how do you like it? I am not looking for a smooth ride, just good handling.

I have one under my '95 Corvette! They are an excellent suspension and should be fairly easily adaptable to many things. The cross-member to which everything is mounted can be cut out whole from a donor car and you can work from there. It may need to be narrowed for some applications. The '84-'87 version is roughly 1.5" narrower wheel to wheel, so that may be your best starting point. I wish I had one to sell you. I've got a complete rear set-up for a C4 for sale but no front end set-ups right now.
And actually, especially if used with good coilovers, excellent ride and handling can coexist quite well.
