WELD-IN FRONT-STEER IFS KITS FOR PICKUPS
'53-64 Ford PU and '55-59 Chevy PU
Our Ford and GM pickup weld-in IFS is available two ways, standard or heavy duty.
The standard IFS is available in 57-inch and 59-inch tread widths with 5-on-4 3/4 bolt pattern. It features a 2 X 4 X .188-inch wall box-tube crossmember that holds the D.O.M. 1-inch diameter X .156-inch wall lower tubular A-arms and 7/8-inch diameter X .156-inch wall upper tubular A-arms. Steering is provided by a Flaming River manual rack-and-pinion, while two '69-72 Chevelle spindles, ball joints, 11-inch rotors, and calipers give you stock over-the-counter GM parts available most everywhere! With a two-position lower mount and a three-position upper mount, the aluminum, adjustable coilover-shocks will give the stance you like best!
Your options (can be substituted at an additional cost) include a ’83-89 T-Bird power rack, 12-inch diameter rotors, bolt-pattern changes, front sub-frames, anti-sway bars, and different tread-widths are available.
The heavy duty IFS is available in 57-inch, 59-inch and 62 1/2-inch tread widths. This easy-to-install, weld-in IFS kit featuring ‘78-88 front-steer Impala spindles, 12-inch diameter (Impala) rotors, calipers, and balljoints will give you a 5-on-5-inch diameter bolt pattern. The new 2 X 4 X .188-inch wall weld-in crossmember holds a ’83-87 T-Bird power rack-and-pinion steering unit. Either a stock, power GM gear-box pump or GM rack pump is compatible to operate the rack. Modifications to the bottom of the steering column will be necessary to connect to the rack spline, or replace it with an ididit column.
The kit features D.O.M. tubing upper-and-lower A-arms (1 1/4-inch dia. X .156-inch wall lower arms and a 1-inch dia. X .156-inch wall upper arm). The aluminum, adjustable coilover shocks with powder coated springs are attached to a three position upper mount and a two position lower mount that offers you the stance you like best!
