Suspension

I’m planning on putting a Corvette C4 suspension under the ‘56 F-100 frame. I found a company Flatout Engineering, that offers brackets for doing this and I just have to find an ‘84 through ‘96 Corvette suspension.

Looking on EBay I found a great deal to get both for around $800. This serves me well because shopping around for an IFS I’m looking at spending around $1800 just for the IFS. Throw in the IRS at another $3000 and I’m way into the red for this chassis.

Here’s what I picked up from EBay.

Now that I have the suspension I can hang it under the frame and figure out the ride height. But first I need to build the frame.

That’s the next project.
