On my 51 Dodge business coupe, what straight axle would you suggest I look for? I don't want it to set sky high, but I want it to look like a gasser and drive well. I'll need front springs, and I'm planning disc brakes, so I'll need something I can convert. From some rough measuring, I think I'm going to need 1 58 to 60 inches total width. I found 1, but it is a round axle, 55 in in length, and must have at least a 5 inch drop. Springs were 4 leaves and only 1 1/2in wide. Really light duty but it done had the disc brakes on it. They were new but they let it lay outside and everything was pretty rusty. This is going to have a 496 BBC with steel 781 heads, so a spring recommendation is in order. I know nothing about straight axles, I want a decent ride if I could. Anything else you might think of, let me know. I can be picking this stuff up. I'm going to Shades of the Past in Tenn in Sept, heard they have a hek of a swap meet.
