After doing lots of research on the internet and here, i cant seem to find an answer. I Currently have a stock 1954 C series panel truck with a solid front axle with drum brakes. Id like to Lower the front end, and the only option for me seems to ship the axle down to sids and have it lowered. Being in canada this can be expensive. I ordered a disk brake kit from olddaddy on here that should take care of the front brake concern for now but at the end of the day its a limited supported axle, parts, and expensive. My question is has anyone swapped over a Ford or similar solid axle from same era of truck? a lowered solid axle can be found cheaper new, and they make a disk brake kit, and power steering kit for the axle. my worry is all the steering arms, spindles etc, or do i use the ones from the ford, my concern is still the pitman arm then, if it needs to be modified. Any help is greatly appreciated.
