|40ChevyJim||From the research that I have found, it appears to be be a very good option. As long as it is installed with everything being level, starting with the frame, then it is almost a bolt on. It looks like you have to fab a couple of mounts, depending on your application, but outside of that it looks like a much more affordable solution. I am in the same boat. Money is money! Parts are cheap and easily obtainable and you end up with a power rack, and the steering is in the right place! From what I see, it sure looks like the way to go. Good luck with your project and thanks. Sometimes you just need to bounce your ideas around!|

we were looking at that two days ago at work
a co-workers friend has a complete rotor2rotor for a 100 bucks
so we were discussing that vs 2000+ for a heits mustang 2
it looks pretty straight forward,just have to get the geometry correct when you hang it

I am considering doing the same IFS swap into a 1948 F1 Ford pickup.
While researching the swap online I came across these
I realize that a F1 Ford is NOT a 40 Chevy ... but you might find the info interesting.
And a Jaguar XJ6 wheel bolt pattern is the same as Chevrolet ( 5 on 4.75 ).

Jag XJ6 IFS install on 40's Chevy
Anybody out there have any info on this install? I understand it is almost a straight bolt in. I can get my hands on one, hub to hub, for a whole lot less than an MII. Replacement parts are relatively inexpensive. Any help would be appreciated!
