Another good thing is later model doners will have easily replaceable ball joints instead of king pins. It could be the wave of the future.

Ok, I'll bite.
I'm considering the twin I-beam idea for my 37 Nash.
Other considerations are the Mustang II and the Jag IFS.
I think the MII is overdone and the Jag is ugly (as is the C4
vettes). But I think I could make the twin IFS look pretty
darn good.
BUT, I've owned several Ford trucks with the twin setup and
I know they actually bend those axles during an alignment.
Is that really needed to get a proper alignment? I'd hate to
send out the axles for length change, polishing and plating
and then have to bend them.
Could be a really good looking setup.

I guess it''s just me, but having worked a number of years as a Ford trained mechanic I have seen my share of problems with the Ford truck twin I beam IFS. I know for a fact that Ford garage front end guys hated to see Ford go to a traditional front suspension in their truck. The twin I beam made a lot of front ends guys a very good living at all the Ford dealerships I worked at.
