AFFORDABLE IFS SUSPENSION
Early vehicles (mainly pre-1933) use fenders that bolt directly to the top of the frame rails and have the axle centerline located closer to the front radiator grille/cowl. This makes it very difficult to correctly set up an MII-based suspension on these vehicles without having to cut the fenders and cowl for the upper control arm and rack clearance. Our Affordable IFS is the best solution for these cars. With proper geometry, stance, and tire-to-fender clearance you’ll be one step closer to hitting that open road! This kit gives you the same ride height and width as a 4” dropped and 2” narrowed axle, but with an independent ride at just the right price!
Our Affordable independent front suspension kit uses many OEM parts to keep the maintenance easy and cost down. Your wheels will be 56” hub-to-hub with the spindle center approximately 1” above the bottom of your frame rail. Proper Ackerman, positive camber gain and anti-dive geometry are all designed along with a rear-steer manual rack and pinion for splash pan clearance.
To achieve maximum strength in our Affordable IFS we make our main crossmember of .250” wall structural steel and our tubular arms of .188″ wall DOM seamless tubing. We never use flame cut parts due to the problems associated with heat-crystallized steel parts.
We use the proven Mustang II springs and shocks and many other OEM components on our Affordable IFS. This helps keep the cost down and makes it easier to source replacement parts when worn items need replacing. You’ll get the maximum ride quality and keep more money in your pocket!
A coilover version will be in development soon!

Many other applications can be built- we just need the measurements mentioned below.
For all applications, we need you to measure the frame outside width and depth, at the axle centerline and 6” ahead and back. This allows us to set up our JIG to match your frame exactly!
For Independent Front Suspension (IFS) Kits study the drawing below. Pay particular attention to the position of the rack & pinion and its pivot points. You cannot reverse spindles or change the length or angle of the upper control arms to clear the fenders without creating dangerous changes in handling. The drawing does not reflect our opinions but rather pure physics, mathematics, and geometry. Regardless of what some advertisers may try to tell you, the laws of engineering do not change. After studying, you’ll know which one works right!
