Post Tubbed rear end

I have a 63' Impala SS i talked to a guy that said i will not need to get new frame rails or a cross member, he said that he could make them out of the frame i already have. I was wondering if i should do it this way or just get a kit? what is your guys oppinions? thanks..

That would be a matter of dollars,it would definitely be cheaper using your old frame,Ive seen it done on a 66 chevelle and it looked good.thats how Im going to do mine when I get around to it.It sure a lot cheaper using your old frame.(Just my opinion wrenchturner)

Hey 409Guy.....before you order that kit you might wanna check with jegs and make sure its gonna fit right without a whole buncha modification and find out everthing your gonna have to buy to make this thing work. Check out www.swracecars.com, they offer frame kits for varius cars/trucks and include the ladder bars, shock/spring kit and all suspension mounting hardware. Its worth a look , Good luck...HRS10

Hey, the above link will not work because of comma at the end of the sentence. Try this one www.swracecars.com

hey man thanks for the link. Thw one that i saw in jegs is the same kit, exactly. except the one in jegs does not come with the springs or theaxle housing and it is $600 cheaper. but now i am kinda wonderin what size tubs i should go with. i think that the ones i saw in summit said they were 36 inch wide but that seems huge so i might of read that wrong, plus i would only have 4" of space between the tubs. well thanks again man, and if you can think of anything else about tubbing a rear end tell me thanks..
