jniolon Spoonie,

I installed a Volare front clip in my '53 f-100 and just finished taking it out... I didn't have the room to fit a 460 in it the way I wanted... soon as I get the frame rails patched I'm gonna put in a Mustang II unit...

volares ride great but that big old honkin steering box was in my way..

62PTCruiser Well, 1962 Chevy trucks came with torsion bar suspension. I've allready got in on there. I just don't know weather I want to keep it or not. :p

johnnymopar 62PT,

i was going to subframe with torsion bar suspension on my '47. But i got looking at it and it is a real pain in the butt. It would take some serious time and effort to get it on there properly. Do yourself a favour and find something else like a camaro or MII front end. Or make yourself some new rails and get a crossmember.

torsion bar suspension

What's your take on torsion bar suspension on a 1962 Chevy Panel Truck.
I'm trying to figure out if I should replace the whole front end now, before I add spindles, disks, etc. for my restoration. Or, should I build off of what I've got?
Any feed back will be helpfull.
