The stock suspension was very stiff & the frame was designed to move....with IFS you want the suspension to work & the frame to not flex, thus the frame s/b boxed.

My 48 frame is fully boxed w/a Must II ifs.

I am new to Stovebolt and have been reading up on boxing the frame. My question leads back to welding on the crossmembers. I have a 1934 Chevy 1/2 pickup that I am putting a 383 stroker into. I plan on putting a Must. II front end in it with a 4 link in the rear. Wouldn't it be better to fully box the frame, while welding in all the crossmembers as well, or fully box it with leaving small gaps where the crossmembers are? I guess I am just confused on how to fully box the frame if I don't weld in the existing crossmembers or by welding in custom made crossmembers. Any information would be helpful.
