I will be building the frame from scratch. I am really just looking for the front suspension and steering components that will work. I know I can buy a front end kit but from guys like Art morrison but they want big bucks.....I'm sure they are worth it though.

I used Art Morrisons suspension parts when I built my Willys frame in this thread...Making A Willys Frame !!!!!!!!

And I have to say it was worth all the money I paid for it..To find ONE car with all the right stuff will be hard..

Hey New Interiors. I just a read through that thread. Willys build looks awesome. How much did that art morrison front end set you backand and did you get it direct from art morrison or a distributor??(if you dont mind me asking). .......Oh yeah has the back half of your frame fallen of yet...what a joke. from another ticket welder looks super stong to me.

If I remember right.. The whole front end and all four coilovers was around $35 or 3700.00 shipped to my door from Art Him self..But Like I said.. It was some first class stuff for sure... And one of the easiest ones I had put on a frame.. I think a kid could have done it..

I no longer have the willys, But I can say.. the frame is still gone strong..The back end never did fall off..

And I made sure it went through the test first....
