Hello, After stalking the board for a few months I decided to Join up. I've got a 1949 Ford 2 door sedan that I've disassembled and started the whole strip and repaint routine. The underbelly and frame are stripped and repainted and I'm ready to start painting the inner fenders and front suspension. I plan to build this car as a homebuilt hot rod without going too nuts on it (satin paint, AC, decent interior, 12V upgrade). It's getting a sbf 302 with a c4. I plan on making a daily driver out of it so I've decided to swap out the stock steering box with a power steering box of whatever I can make work. I also plan on a power disc brake conversion. And now the question. How does the stock suspension feel and handle on these cars? I don't want to invest a whole bunch in rebuilding this front end if it would be better to clip it, (I have an S10 clip available but It's going to need a full rebuild). The Fords factory independent suspension looks so much better than the old straight axles but I've never driven one so I don't know how they handle. Remember, this is going to be a daily driver that I'll take on the highway. I'm not racing this thing.....excessively. Just curious what the general opinions are here. I've seen some of the better write ups on these cars here than anywhere else so I throw my question out in these waters. Any input is appreciated.
