can hardly wait to see the progress on this, looks like it is going to be a sweet ride when done! You probably already know this but, if you find a 59 Suburban and just change the fender and hood emblems to 58. The rest of the body should be identical....
Watch for them in mid Missouri and let me know if you find one. I'll check it out and can get it and hold it for you. But you'll have to pick it up sometime this summer. Virginia is as far as I'm going east this year.
Of all the things I've lost in my life, I miss my mind the most!
Yes, I subscribing to this, very cool indeed. I love big truck builds. Sven, make sure you leave enough adjustment in the parallel rear bars for pinion angle to be correct at ride height. It is hard to tell from the picture and dont know if you have finished welding and bolting up the mock up. Steve
Thanks 2-ton for the info! I got some good family friends out is Missouri, and I myself have worked there for a couple internships, so I know the St. Louis Area well. I have spent some time online looking for some out in missouri.
sstock, I welded all of my link/bag brackets on with the pinion set at 6 degrees. I have plenty of room on the rod ends to fully adjust the pinion angle to match the tranny. That's the nice part about using links.
I am hoping to mount the engine within the next 2-3 weeks, then I can build the front suspension.
