Must II p.s.

I am at the point that I need to buy a IFS for a 1948-53 type Chevy trk. I am going to use a Camaro or a Must II. I have to narrow the Camaro 2" & use wheels wlarge backspacing or use a Must II which, would be easier ,but I have a problem with the R&P on the Must II.

I would like to hear comments on members that have a Must II IFS with a latter model(I think around 1990) Must R&P or a late model T-bird R&P.
I need PS, but do not like the sensitivity of the Must II R&P & the Flaming river R&P steers too hard for my personel tast.

thanks Don

If your truck is going to be a streetrod, I personally would put a malibu or S10 front clip under it. There well designed, plentifull, parts are cheap,and it will ride real smooth.
the malibu is a couple of inches wider than the S10,but I think the only difference is in the centre link length.
Just measure both and use which ever one is closest to the width you want with the wheels and tires you want to run.
When cutting the frame from the doner chassis get as much of the frame rails as possible and then spend some time measuring both the trucks original frame and the frame of the new front clip to see where the 2 can be easily grafted together.
Don't make the splice of the 2 frames straight up and down,but rather an overlapping of the 2 frames for strength.
Just my 2 cents worth
good luck

Any idiot can restore one---but it takes a real hero to cut one up

HHmmmmm, I personally have a MII under my '38. As far as p/s is concerned it's a simple as "tweaking" the pressure spring in your pump....or use a newer "metric" pump. They don't need tweaking at all because their pressure is lower and more in-line with the MII rack. A friend of mine has done both on his 50 torpedo back. Started last season witha grafted camaro IFS in it. hated the ride, the feel and the handling. Pulled a second frame, went with the MII IFS and is happier than a pig-in-slop with it.
Just my 2 cents worth though.
T*ts or Tires....both will cause you grief

I just dropped a Chassis Engineering front end in my 39 Chevy. Took about 4 hours by myself. See my gallery for pics. Went in slick. I went thru JPL in Pennsylvania for it. They were cheaper than going factory direct. I got the manual front end. My buddies that installed front ends all agreed that manual was the right way. I will let you know when I get it on the road....but it will be a while. So many parts, so little money....

I use a MII power rack in the 36 with a standard gm pump and do not feel that it is oversensitive at all. It has been in there like that for 4 years without even a leak.
