These are on the way:


Blatantly copying this:



Less than 1000 miles, $575 shipped to my door. Can't beat that price with a stick.

What's that? IRS under an old pickup truck!?


Shit, more Ford parts on a Chevy - FWIW, this is just getting stored in a convenient place for the moment; I need to massage the frame and the cradle to make it look less like an abomination when I fit it in there.


Small damper on, rack in it's final spot, but I have to deal with tierod ends; for the best geometry, they need to mount from the underside. Looking into heavy-duty rod-ends and grade 8 hardware or drilling and reaming the steering arm from the bottom.


Air injection crap cut out and holes welded up. Plenty of room for the steering shaft.

I know this doesn't really have much to do with your thread, and I don't mean to clutter it up, but Barrett-Jackson was on last night in the barn and I saw this truck go across the block. Reminds me a little of what you are doing. I like it and thought you might as well.

Drilled out my steering arms and re-reamed them to steer from the bottom; solves 95% of my sterring geometry woes.


The new plasma cutter is making the big jobs go much faster. Good news: the T-bird suspension is going to work well. Bad news: the entire rear half of the frame needs a redesign to clear the upper arms during suspension travel. Good news: I don't mind.

Starting on the "rebuild" of the rear half of the frame. The frame rails above the control arms are going to interfere, so they're going away.


Got the spacers in for the wheels and had to test fit at least one. This is sitting at the proposed ride height (5" drop) - basically, the equivalent of the stock rear axle sitting on the bumpstops


I really like these wheels.


Avortec AV3X Plasma/TIG/ARC. I love this thing - I'm going to do a full review on its awesomeness in the next few weeks.



This shows a better angle of where the frame rails will be cut out. I'm going to plate-in the rear subframe front and rear where it connects to the new rails I'm adding. When that is finished, the original frame rails will be cut fore and aft of the suspension and I'll blend in the coil perches and shock mounts.



Steering is done - well, close. Rack is in its final spot, the knuckles are drilled and tapered from the bottom and the rod ends just need some 1" I.D. DOM to tie the two bushings together on each side.

A bit more...

More boxing, one side of the rear rails replaced. Now I've got to build up the top spring perches, box that into the rear subframe and add some shock mounts.

I think you're just jealous. Jealous of what, I'm not sure, but it's probably of my awesomeness.

I can not believe the amount of beautiful craftsmanship that is going in to a truck with such an ugly bed.
