I have found two kits; one from Rustyhope.com and another from Butch'scoolstuff.com Has anyone had experience with either of these? Good,bad,indifferent ? If so i would like your opinion. Am i missing other kits for my Plymouth? Thanks!! Also oldmoparts.com

I have the Rusty Hope kit on my 48 Plymouth coupe and it works great even with the stock Plymouth wheels. That is something to be aware of that some require grinding on the calipers or wheel or trial and error fit of non-stock wheels.

The install was a breeze. Once the spindle mounting holes were drilled larger and tapped it was a straight bolt on. Had it all done in one day. I had no issues that I needed to contact him with but others on the P15-D24 forum who have used the Rusty Hope kit have said he has excellent customer service.
