xxllmm4 Well they unbolt from the Volare but are then welded in. At least all I have seen have the frame rails cut to shape then welded in.

I really had my hopes up. It would have been a great way to raise it. It looks like my only hope is some custom fabbed raised spindles. It looks like there are a few shops that do this kind of work but it looks like most of them want to do the same spindles they have been doing.

volare to truck swap,

I looked at a early 50's truck a while back, got down and looked under it and the guy said it unbolted, for the truck swap he trimmed the crossmember, I just checked the ford truck forum and they go thru a list of Mopar swaps into ford trucks,

xxllmm4 timothale, I'll have to look at my manual too see but i think its welded in.

MARTINSR, they still make raised spindles for a lot of trucks on the market. It looks like I might have to find a good welder. Its probally a little more than I want to tackel with my stick welder LOL

Thanks
"Raised spindles" that's something you don't hear anymore. Back in the early seventies my dad found my brother a very nice 59 Chevy wagon that was raised a foot over stock! I wish I had a photo of the spindles, some shop did a masterful job making them.

They can be cut and welded but you better have a QUALIFIED welder weld them!

crossmember

Doesn't the Volarie have a bolt in crossmember, put some spacers between the frame structure and the crossmember.
