What one to buy,and why


I am going to buy a new chassis for my 40 Ford coupe,with so many manufactures to choose from and with so many front suspension options and rear end set ups , I am having trouble making up my mind. I now have a mustang ll front end out of a 78 , along with leaf springs in the rear. I am thinking may be coil-overs on the front and a 4 bar with coil-overs on the rear. I can get what ever I want, money not a problem when it comes to my coupe.

So I sure could use some feed back on what and who to buy from on this.

TCI has a well engineered product, and they have remained consistant in their quality throughout the years.

The only bad thing I can think of is that they have mediocre instructions and the tech support is poor.

I don't really like their choice of Wilwood brakes for their show stuff either.
If you get the GM disc up front and regular drum brakes in the rear it will stop alot better than the billet stuff they sell.

Later, mikey
my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example

TCI and Art Morrison are both great companys, I have a very good friend who is a TCI dealer, he can save you some money and he is EXTREMELY honest. I love the TCI chassis under my '32. If you like send me a private message and I'll give you his number.....Dave
