    I think from 80's. You'll need to buy or make locators to straighten them out...

    All Fab!
    The chassis sits 7" off the ground @ stock height, while I channeled the body over it.

    Before and after. I got ride height to 6" front and rear.. Big drop in height when you compare centre of rear axle to sill in before and after shots. Made a jig to set up ride height and modified chassis / suspension to sit just right.

    3" Sid's axle, plus 3 leafs removed in the front, 2" lowering saddles plus 2 leafs removed in back. I've had 2 other rigs with MII setups - this one rides and handles just as good, maybe better. Stick with "old school" boys!!! Lakeview Park, Nampa, ID, 6-6-15, Best of Show, Idaho Chariots award.jpg

    2 coils off all four corners and 2" drop spindles from speedway's disc conversion kit with 14" g-body steelies (until I can find some effing 4.75" 15" steelies--where'd they all go??)

    Rides good, exhaust hits before the bump stops so I just use the pipes like curb feelers for the undercarriage. needs shorter shocks in the rear.
