Your question is incomplete. Are you talking about replacing the stock suspension with a Heidts unit or replacing and existing Heidts unit with something else?

I can see why you would want to replace what you've got now.

The only advise I can offer is to cut out the existing crossmember as carefully as possible and then just follow the instructions on the Heidts unit for installation. Their units are easy to install, I've done one on a 41 Chevy coupe and a 53 pickup and once the frame is cleaned and ready for installation an experienced welder can install one in an afternoon.

Good luck.
