I was thinking of mounting one like this in my 50 coupe...I think it would work fine..

That is a really neat way to handle a narrow front end. I would consider doing something like that if it solved the brake problem, the wheel bearing probLem And the obsolete suspension in general.

Don't get me wrong, even though I am usually a Ford guy, I remember the Chevies of these years drove better than the Fords. I also remember that Corvette used this exact front end until 1962.

These front ends have ball bearings, kingpins and hydraulic shocks. I would like to get rid of all of it at the same time.
