Front suspension or the whole front clip?

Are you talking about putting a Volare front clip on the frame of the 53 Chevy? You can weld anything in... you just make it fit!! My 37 Dodge had a real Mustang II saddle and all welded onto the frame...I removed it and put in a Jim Meyers Mustang II on it.

Did you go for it

Hi I am considering the same volare swap for my 50 chevy truck just wondering where your at with your project.
Did you ever decide to do the swap?
I know the threads over 100 days old so you might be up to your neck in the swap. I hope you are and would be willing to sends some pics.

Here is an article on installing a volare clip in an F100. Should give you a good start at how to install in in your AD pickup.
