I've been fighting this ol heap for while now & I finally won. First thing I found was it had the wrong front hubs & bearings. Had 55 Ford truck hubs & bearings on early Ford car spindles, there was only a 1/4" gap between the inner bearings & spindles. Got the correct disk brake kit from Speedway & I just knew this would fix the poor driving issues. It didn't. So then I replaced the worn out steering box & summoned the Hamb for recommendations of what ratio to go with 16: 1 or 20:1. After some expert Hamb advise I went with a 16:1 instead of the wore out 20:1 that was on it. Made a small difference on the bad driving issue but it sure did help maneuvering it around in parking lots with the quicker steering. So back to the Hamb for more research. After searching & reading all the straight axle alignment posts I could find I was fully armed to attack the axle alignment. After hours of looking at every front suspension part on the car including changing the toe in from 1/8" to 1/16"in, I found out that my front axle was tilted a bit to the front which is not good. The front axle has a 4 link setup. I thought this would be a easy fix , just adjust the 4 link bars until the front axle tilts back about 3-4 degrees. I got out my Craftsman angle finder. I loosened 1 of the 4 link bars to adjust it.. The rod end was STUCK & would not turn. I took the bar off & tried PB blaster & still wouldn't budge so out came the torch. Tried just a little heat but rod end still wouldn't turn, so I turned it red hot. The rod end turned in the tube about a 1/2 turn. I started working it both ways trying to get it free. I even let it cool off & tried PB blaster again but a 1/2 turn is all it would go. So I turned it red hot again with the torch & broke the rod end off in the tube. I was done for the night since I had to work the next day. I looked around for a replacement 4 link bar & rod end. Speedway does not sell just one but Posie's does. The hard part was trying to figure out if I had 5,7,9 or 11 degree rod ends. After measuring the axle king pin center to center, batwing center to center & frame 4 link mounts Kris at Posies determined that I had 9 degree rod ends so I got a new 4 link bar & rod end from them. While I was waiting for it to come in I decided to try my luck at the remaining 3 bars. 1 of them would turn freely but the other 2 wouldn't. I already had one new one on the way so I was going to see if I could salvage the rod ends by splitting the bars with a die grinder to get the rod ends out & just order 2 more bars. I got them out but the threads were gaulded & ruined. After looking at everything I realized the to adjust this with one rod end not straight that I would have to take the bar completely out if the rod end only needed a 1/2 turn because of the degree offset. After many years of drag racing & tuning my 4 link rear drag car suspension I decided I needed to upgrade the 4 link bars. I found some chrome alloy swedge tubes from Speedway that are threaded in both ends so I got 4 of them 8 new rod ends knowing I got one from posies that probably won't get used. I will find a use for it some day like the rest of the things that I have accumulated over the years the same way. Today the brown truck delivered the goods from Speedway only 3 days later than the speedy delivery I paid extra for. I got it all assembled & put about 7 degrees of rearward axle tilt in it. Finally the car drives good now, no more road walking, no more pulling to the left the to the right. Just wondering if anyone has used the Speedway swedge tubes for this purpose? They seem pretty strong & have threaded bungs welded in instead of threaded tubes like the 4 link kits come with.
