Conte Front End

Guys: I have a Conte in My 48 Woodie. It is still the best system in the business. I have a 16.5 Alden eagle shock that is 8 months old in it. I was at GNRS last week and talked to the Alden guys that were there. They also believe the front end on my car is still the best. Strut rod included. I have never had a problem with it! The ride is fantastic. All the others on the market use a 9 in shock. Travel means allot in ride comfort. The car was built in 1991. I have 37 thou on the system with no problems.

Do you have any idea what steering rack Conte used? I'm working on a '32 he did, and ordered a 9/16 26 spline Mustang II u-joint and it won't fit. The steering shaft is 9/16 with about 58 very fine splines. Neither Flaming River nor Borgeson show anything like that. Another post said 73-77 Pinto, but isn't that the same as Mustang II?
