    Will the front axle from a 1952 Fargo pickup work in my 55 Pontiac. Any problem getting parts for brakes etc? How high would this lift the front as it is a drop axle. I want the gasser look but not sure what to use.

    Not sure what a Fargo is????????
    Here is a picture of my 48 Chevy Coupe, 340hp 327 with Muncie 4spd and 57 Chev rear end. I used a 55 Chevy 1/2 pickup straight axle and it worked great except for the fact my turning radius was about 10 feet shorter.

    Also, depending on how many springs will depend on ride height. I was using 15x6 Cragers and they were dished........don't remember the offset but it raised the car about 6".

    Almost forgot..................the picture of the 48 Coupe was taken in 1970 and I traded the car plus cash for a 64 Impala with 300hp 327 and factory 4spd.
