Help with a 56 Chevy truck

I am looking applying a 56 Chevrolet truck. I am on a budget(according to my wife) so I want economical options. I am looking for a good article and I can't find one on her way to add IFS for this truck without buying one of the aftermarket fancy kits. Can anybody help?

Even if you used a clip...by the time you replaced the old ball joints and tie rod ends, wheel bearings and seals, etc. and brake components etc. you could by the after market kit just as cheap.

Check with stovebolt.com
They discuss only Chevy trucks up through 1966 and with several thousand folks there the advice flows fast. I would install an after market IFS like Heidt's.

help with a 56 chevy truck

Heres a firebird subframe I am working on in my 57 chev truck. I kinda go with what Henry Highrise said but... for me anyway, I can slowly do all that work to my IFS over a period of time therefore not straining my budget too much as an initial aftermarket purchase would. http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/jour...ournalid=24953
