Do you have any pics of the finished frame? I found the pics! I followed your link after I had posted my reply. Oct 17, Messages: Most trucks with S front ends use the whole s frame. If you are going for the "stock look" If you are gonna slam the truck and stuff big wheels in the fenders I have 20 inch front wheels and can still turn without hitting sheetmetal.

    Flipper , Jun 10, Oct 14, Messages: The idea of using a independent front suspension first came to me shortly after my dad bought me my Chevrolet truck in This book is very helpful for the new-be like myself. The book is where I first pondered the idea of using this suspension. In the suspension section, the book shows a diagram of a torsion bar suspension. Looking at this picture I noticed that the cross member unbolts completely from the frame and is self contained in one unit.

    This is great I thought as I later learned that the through ? Suspension system is identical except for the fact that coil springs are used instead of torsion bars.

    After looking over my truck and making a list of what parts I will need or ideas of what parts I can use, I went to the wrecking yard to look and to see what just might work. The difference is about 2 inches.
