05-08-2014 04:54 PM Almost done with IFS
Measure, measure and re-measure. Making sure center line is right.
Then welding in the cross member
and the upper control arm mount
cleaned up the welds and painted it with Chassis black from Eastwood.
This was a Mustang II suspension kit I bought from Progressive Automotive, Inc
I can't say enough good things about Bob at progressive. He answered so many of my questions. The support was outstanding. The instructions were good, but since this was my first time doing something as big as this. It was very nice to be able to e-mail him with questions and pics and have him verify I wasn't screwing it up.

05-08-2014 03:51 PM more IFS work
This is what the front suspension used to look like.
until I pulled it off (sitting on a wooden frame with wheels so I can move it around)
then cleaned up the frame and sprayed it with some silver paint before I boxed it in.
Made sure everything was square and level (I must have measured a 100 different ways to give me some peace of mind).

03-22-2013 06:36 PM Front suspension measurements
Hoping to install a new IFS on my 1951 Chevy 3/4 ton. Most IFS kits are designed for 1/2 ton. I honestly don't know if the front of the 3/4 ton frame is much different than the 1/2 ton. I know the back is different. posting pics that show the frame of the truck when it was originally put together (12 years ago) and some current pics along with a diagram with some measurements.
