    Here is par of another post I made to Dave in another thread. It lists lots of folks who offer parts for the old Mopars. Need to mention as well that FatMan's has dropped spindles as well.

    There are several places that carry the parts to rebuild the stock fron suspension.

    Rock Auto
    NAPA, Autozone, Kanter and others.

    As for the Rack and Pinion, I know that FatMans and PlyDo both carry these kits.

    You can get disc brake kits from Olddaddy or Scarebird here on the HAMB or ECI and PlyDo. Or follow this link to put together your own

    Shock relocation is a pretty straight forward job and will make a big improvement in ride quality. Olddaddy sells the brackets for this or you can fab your own pretty easy

    While this article is specifically about a 51 Plymouth Suburban front end rebuild it all pretty much applies to our 48's as well

    I'm working on a 33 Dodge coupe and collecting parts for 46 Dodge truck and a 37 Plymouth sedan.
    I have a 327csb in the coupe.

  4. My avatar was my 46 I built. I paid 200 for the starter truck, so you know what all I got. Built it, sold it. On to the next. Bought 2 cars in the last 2 weeks. A 69 GS 400 Convertible and a 30/31 model A. Peer into Youtube, "46 dodge" for 2 cool burnout vids.

    Here is my 30 Dodge DD6 Business Coupe I just took it to the shop yesterday! I will have a complete original drivetrain for sale if anyone is interested. I have Hemi stuff for sale just do an advanced search for dirty30dodge. I need that money for all the build expenses. Ouch! Thanks I am putting a 331 Hemi/700r4 and a used halibrand champ! a 51 ford straight axle in front with discs all around. Hoping to keep it more 50's 60's style! Traditional I hope If I can sell more stuff will chop the top about 4-5 inches. Lots of work but always worth it! My first 30's car so its going to be a challenge! Thanks HAMBERS!

    And 10 minutes after registering for the site, I went through all 38 pages of it. Great stuff.

    I was a little disappointed to see not too many of one of my dream projects, a 1940 DeSoto or Plymouth 4 door. I found one or two, but not nearly as many as I'd hoped.

    But anyway, great work. Here's to another 6 years of posts!

    Heres a link to a thread I just started about my wifes new car - 37 Dodge coupe.

    I also have the 59 Dodge custom Royal Lancer in my avator pic. I have owned it since 1991 and am planning to get back on it next year or earlier if possible. It hasn't been on the road now sinceabout 2001 and thats waaaaay too long.
    It has a 51/2 inch chop with the roof being replaced with one from a 57 or 59 plymouth. It was a four door but I 2 doored it several years ago. It runs a 429 ford backed up with a c6.
