spring perch no welding needed ???

A guy today suggested to me that one could make up a perch extention out of flat bar. Bolt it to exesting perch making it match up to whatever distance needed
to match up to spings. And that the ford 150 is very close to his idea.To me it sounds a little lame. But no welding needed
What do you think of this. You would think the after market would be all over this are they ??

IF I understand your post.... you are installing a different rear end ( ford) into a 55 chevy car?

The spring perches must be welded to the axle tube. The rear end would try to spin around under torque from the drive train. A diaster would happen

You can purchase pre-built spring perches from several suppilers ie: Jegs , Summit racing, many others.

If you run some type of ladder bar or a four link suspension , then an axle floater kit can be used to mount the rear diff to the springs. Still needs welding
