knee action

We have a 36 pontiac in the shop that has knee action, plus a spare. it has a curved tube axle then the big knee at the end that turns everything, the wheel and brakes at at the end of 2 links. so there is less unsprung weight, for a better ride when working correctly , but usually needs the spring-shock rebuilt every 30 K miles when they were driven on rough roads.

47 Chevy Business Coupe Front End questions

I'm new to Street Rodding and traded for a 47 Chevy...It has the original front end and I need some help on it. I'm on a very tight budget and want to know what can be done to the stock front end to get rid of the floating bounce I get when I hit bumps. Is there anyway to add shocks to the front end? I was told it had a hydraulic system..can it be rebuilt or are there parts out there to replace any of this....I know I could change out the front end and probably will in the future, but wanted to do something now less expensive so I can enjoy the car now....Any help?
