I'm interested in your idea, but the link in your post didn't work. Is there any progress on marketing the kit?

I brought it back up because I believe other then the stock suspension, your kit is the way to go to keep from clipping or even doing a frame swap. Even though I have Marge on a stretched S10 frame at the moment, I have something rolling around in my head. I just wish your kit was around 6yrs ago.
I'm thinking about starting over on my frame & stretching a stock AD 1/2ton frame and using your kit so I can get a better track width in the front, get rid of the steering box & use a rack, being able to use a stock style radiator & along with not having to cut my inner wheel wells.
But before I do anything I need to get some measurements off of a 1/2ton frame first before I decide. Got any????????..joe

Joe, do you have any CAD background, I have the front of the half ton modeled in Pro/E. however for your project, I would suggest a stretched 3/4 ton since the frame rails are parallel.

here is a link to some frame measurments http://chevy.oldcarmanualproject.com/shop/1948_51truck/51ctsm0202.htm

hope this helps for now.

Nope I know NOTHING about "CAD" other then a few friends work in that field.
And thanks for the info on the different between the frames.
I wasn't for sure BUT I had thought there was a difference, that's why I asked about frame specs.
Now did I read somewhere in one of your many posts on this that w/the 3/4ton frame you have to lay the kit deeper into the frame to get the drop some folks want??
Along w/possibly using dropped spindles and/or lowered springs??
Because I prefer having my beast low to the ground...joe

Scott, Have you found anybody that has installed the front suspension and posted pictures online? I have not moved on it at all. I was asked to work on finishing the basement and that has turned into a multi-year job for me.
