  6. Front cross member is the lowest point underneath at about 3.5 inches-goes down the road just fine-a sharp driveway can usually be navigated at an angle without catching the bumper

  8. Here's my '50 chevy....no juice, no assist. Actually rides like a dream and glides right down the road without hitting too much if you watch what you are doing.

    This cars pretty low considering it has 28.5" tall tires all the way around. 5" dropped Sids axle, reverse eye main with leaves removed in the front. Chassis engineering low parallel leaf kit in the rear. Will probably get a lowering block to level it out this winter. IMG_20191003_182438_837.jpeg IMG_20191003_182438_840.jpeg

    Got any more pics of that '48? Side shot perhaps? Specs on the suspension setup?
     
  17. Only about 3.5" off the running board brackets. The Axle is the lowest point, so I figure if I can run it over I will be fine. If it hits the axle.....Well lets not think about that. No scrub line concerns, even with the tall sidewall tires.
    Only trouble I have had is occasionally dragging a running board over a speed bump when I am straddling it so I take big ones at an angle.

    2" drop spindles and cut coils in the rear. Just a tad too low. Speed humps can be a problem, drive shaft hits the floor with passengers in the back seat and luggage in the trunk. IMG_0812.JPG
