No longer do you have to go to the junk yard to buy a Camaro or whatever front chassis section to
"clip" your car or truck. We have been making custom designed (Front) IFS and (Rear) IRS, standard,
or stepped chassis subframes for a few years now, and it has become part of our standard product
line. We can design a front or rear-steer subframe for any street rod, classic Chevy, large car or
truck. Whether you want air bags, or coilovers, we will design an IFS subframe that will be the
same width as your chassis rails, have the same wheel base, any track width, any step over the
front IFS, engine mounts, rack-and-pinion steering, core support mount or whatever is necessary.
Computer generated, mandrel-bent, custom steps over the IFS is also an option.
Our standard brake packages with these IFS "clips" are the ‘70-81 Camaro 11-inch disc brake
(5-on-4 3/4) or the ‘77-88 Impala/Caprice 12-inch disc brake (5-on-5). We offer steering linkage
kits, stock column adapters to splined U-joints, Flaming River or ididit columns to solve your
steering hook-up problems.
The rear chassis subframes can be tubbed, stepped, air bagged or whatever you’d like. To complete
your new rear clip, we jig-narrow and straighten Ford rearends and use Dutchman alloy axles any
spline, any wheel bolt-pattern, big bearings, any flange (GM, Ford or Mopar). We also offer a
universal rear 4-link kit with two styles of Panhard bars and a universal transmission
cross-member/trans mount kit. Both come extra long so you can cut-to-fit for your chassis needs.
You can ship us your chassis, or send us the dimensions, or drive your car to our shop for a free
estimate. Be sure to ask us about installation at our shop, too! Other options include custom
bent 1-inch od front-and-rear sway bars, Wilwood or high performance brakes. Complete rearends
or housings are available from Halibrand, Alston’s FAB9, new ‘58 Ford style housings, Championship
style, or bring your own! We are a dealer for Air Ride Technologies, Racing Brakes, Wilwood
and many other popular street rod and classic Chevy manufacturers.
Bring your ride into the future, and have a great handling hot rod with a custom subframe! You’ll
have rack-and-pinion steering, disc brakes, narrower front track for more turning room under the
fender, coilovers or air bags, and it will mate perfectly to the width of your existing frame
rails. Most of all you’ll have all the adjustability we build into all of our other IFS kits
and direct replacement chassis!
Our Straight Axle Gasser front suspension is now available as a universal kit for any car or pickup. This complete easy-to-graft subframe will raise the nose of your car or pickup and make it look like its was right out of the Sixties coming off the line. The rear-steer leaf-spring suspension includes everything you'll need to install it into your frame.
The straight axle assembly is complete with tube axle (any width), leaf springs (rated at 3500 lbs.for the pair) with front shackles and rear frame brackets, shocks with frame mount brackets, new Super Bell early Ford spindles with bolt-on Super Bell 2-inch dropped steering arms, new cross-steer Flaming River Vega steering box with 2-inch dropped Pitman arm and cross-steer drag link and tie-rod. It features Wilwood 4-piston calipers with 11-inch rotors with a 5-on-4 3/4 wheel bolt-pattern to fit inside nostalgic 15-inch wheels.
We include special box tube grafting sections to install the new suspension to the stock chassis that will be cut at the first body mount, just in front of the firewall. We offer steering linkage hook-up kits or new Ididit steering columns and disc-drum brake kits that plumb into your existing brake system. Any of our parts are available separately.
