Bluepen Its a weld in kit. You have to box the frame, weld in cross member and the top hats for the springs. I didn't have much of a choice because that old S-10 front end was not going to work at all for it. As for keeping the stock axle I'm not sure of. There is a guy here in town that has a '42 1/2T PU with the stock front end but he only has a 235 6cyl in it also. I got the spring problem I told you about fixed today but haven't got pics yet. I'll have to do that Sat.

derrick3422 sorry it took me so long to reply. . . great pics. How much welding was invloved? Did you use a bolt on kit? I really don't want to cut the frame How impractical is it to stay with the current straight axle and build up from there?

If you look

If you look in my gallery you will find a '46 Chevy 1/2T Panel Truck with a M II kit installed. Not to pricy and not to hard to install. Got a little problem with the springs but that will be fixed this week and I will beable to show you it at the road ready ride height. The truck also has a SBC 350/400TH engine and trans. Let me know if you need some more info on doing this for your truck, be glad to help out any way I can. About the best thing I can say is been there, done that and happy I did.


The pics of the front end are on pg 3, the old front end is from an S-10 PU that the PO had put on the truck, it did not work.

71 c-10 does it have a solid axle?? is it 4wd. Im assuming you mean independent front suspension. You should be able to get kits for it. But i may be wrong. Im working on a 1971 c10 that im gona lower so maybe we can help each other out. O yea welcome to the board and you might get better responses in the suspension forum.

IFS for 46 chevy truck

I have a 1946 Chevy 1/2 ton that I am working on. This is my frist one and I
am wondering if I should replace the original suspension system with an IFS.
Also, if I replace it, can I bolt on the parts from a Camero or should I go with the Mustang II suspension. I plan on putting a 327 with 400 or 700R transmission.
