Hello. I have a 38 Chevy coupe that I love but I cannot keep it going down the road in a straight line. I think the axle is probably ok, the kingpins are solid but obviously the original steering box is shot. As well the straight axle. I don't know if it is actually stock or? but no shocks Etc. Where do I start? I wouldn't mind IFS but which one to buy that doesn't break the bank?:welcome:

Gotta have some shocks to control the rebound of the springs.. Get those on there and go to Borgeson.com for a steering box (new) and tight of the ration you like. Rebuild the springs. old school way was to take the springs apart cut some window screen the size of the spring leaf and lay it in with a thin layer of grease. makes for a much better ride. Check the castor should be about 5-7 degrees.

i like the old school axles can't you tell..
