    A million years ago Gene Scott's multiple company (Early Ford Parts, P.S.I., California Pickups, Fabulous 40s, etc.) address on E. Garvey could be sourced for some nice cast steel weld-on over rear mounts. There are many folks since then making welded up sets from plate and tubing. Speedway is one of them.

    Speedway has welded up steel. I used them, then had a custom main leaf made to fit because I used an axle that was only 57 inches wide.

    X2 On the So Cal ones,
    they are very nice and well made,Stay away from the Speedway ones,they look cheap and are butt f*ck ugly!!

    The SoCal Ones hug the circumference of the axle tube and look better.
    IMHO

  9. It looks like the ones from Speedway also sit higher than the ones from So-Cal and Pete&Jakes.
