Our 1928–1933 General Motors Affordable independent front suspension 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 trick 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 IFS kit uses many OEM parts in order 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 in, 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 rather than the .090″ wall used by many of our competitors. We never use flame cut parts due to the problems associated with heat-crystallized steel parts.
You’ve probably noticed our competitors ads which discuss the use of long coilover shocks to improve ride quality. They’re headed in the right direction, but stop too soon. A coilover shock designed for rear axle use will have about a 250 pound per inch spring rate, whereas a front spring will be more in the 450 pound per inch spring rate range. The simple fact is that the same spring size cannot be made 21/2 times as strong without losing ride quality. That’s why we use the proven Mustang II springs and shocks on our Affordable IFS. You’ll get maximum ride quality and keep more money in your pocket!
