Great to see that you joined the forum Chris. We've got several '55's as well as many other great Gassers. We are all about helping each other build our dream cars and no build is right or wrong, just a Gasser. Start a build thread in the Project section and we can ride along with you. Lots of very experienced and knowledgeable guys here. Glad you're in the "fold", and looking forward to seeing your car.
Welcome aboard! That sounds like a solid build. Did the same with my springs and am using Cal-Tracs. I went straight axle but a ton of guys are doing the taller springs too. Cool look. Start a build thread so we can see whats up.
p.s. are you running fenderwells or inside the frame headers? I have some stuff left from when I was going to do a big block.
