Im doing all my planning for a modified project I'm getting ready to start up and have a couple questions about some suspension stuff. The plan for this project is to take all the stuff off my ol 52 chevy pickup project that im not going to use again(pretty much everything on the chassis) and use them to build me a modified. So, im planning to use the 52 front axle, and build some hairpins that will bolt on the axle where the leaf spring pads are, and run the axle out infront of the frame. Now comes the shady shit. I really want to run a transverse spring back behind the radiator, but it seems to me that the torsional loads would be too much for the pins to take. Am i right? Any one tried this? Have i been around to many fumes for even considering this? If this is a really shitty idea(which I think will be the verdict) do I have any other options, or do i need to go find me a ford axle and bones? My idea for the pins is to truss them for extra strength, and put a plate on the inside to mount the spring to. I'll try to attach a quick paint drawing.
