    Anyone running a 4 bar front end on a 35-40 ford? Im reading mixed reviews on them stating that they don't react like the earlier cars (model A, Deuce..) because of the spring being in front of the axle. Is this a safety issue? Speedway motors sells the kit. Any help before i make a mistake is appreciated.

    Ask Jerry or Jason at Pete and Jake's Hot Rods. Good honest people. I would buy from them rather than Speedway as they make them their selves where Speedway has a lot of their stuff made offshore.

    Used speedway kit on my 41 conv. Had no problems with ride or handling. Only problem I had was the wider tires rubbed on the bars in full lock. Just had to be aware of that when parking mostly.

  4. I built a '36 Ford roadster in the late 90's and used a Chassis Engineering 4 bar system. Allowed the front to sit lower than the Chassis Engineering split bones system that I had used on a '37 coupe. Put about 30,000 miles on the car before I sold it. No problem. Last I heard the car is now in New Zealand.

    CE had the best set up and they worked fine for me. Fat Jack also used them on his cars. He would modify the stock bones to a 4-bar P&J bracket with excellent welding.
