Post Volare front clip for 57 chev pick-up?

My Brother-in-law picked up a nice 57 chev pick-up we want to restomod and I'm researching some info for him. We liked the fact that the Volare front clip is height adjustable, thinking we might avoid problems ending up at the wrong height. He doesn't want to buy any kits to keep costs down. Has anyone done this? Do you use the whole front frame of the volare or do you keep the trucks frame? Does anyone know of a good site with info on the Volare front clip? Thanks,Murray

I read where you did not want a kit......

But Gibbons Fiberglass in Darlington SC has a kit that uses Road Runner ... Mopar pieces with torsion bars. Works great. They have a kit for 55-57 Chevrolet pickups. The kit is less than $500.

Money well spent to eliminate potential problems ..that can cost a lot more than $500 to correct.

MURRAY, LOOK UP "NO LIMIT ENGINEERING", THEY HAVE A GREAT VIDEO YOU'LL FIND VERY HELPFULL. I PUT ONE IN MY 53 F100. YOU WILL ONLY NEED TO "NOTCH" THE FRAME, AND TRIM THE VOLARE CROSSMEMBER.THATS OVER SIMPLIFIED. IF I WERE YOU GUYS, I WOULD LOOK AT THE MII STUFF REAL HARD, IT IS CERAINLY A MORE ATTRACTIVE SET UP COSMETICALLY.ALSO,I UNDERSTAND THAT VOLARE REPLACEMENT TORSION BARS ARE HARD TO FIND.BY THE TIME YOU PURCHASE " DROPPED SPINDLES" SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO CRANK THE BARS ALL THE WAY TO GET IT DOWN, YOU CAN BUY A AFTERMARKET MII CROSSMEMBER.JUST DO YOUR HOMEWORK, THER ARE MANY OPTIONS.
