I heard through the grapevine that 1956 Chevy Gasser (Jeff) has a new look to his car's front suspension. So when are we going to get pictures here Jeff?

Nice setup! It took a while looking at it to see that the tie rod is behind the axle. Safe that way. I notice the panhard bar, too. And the perfectly level steering linkage. Looks like a great setup and the stance is fantastic. Good job Jeff!

Very nice! Clean set up. Nice job.
Was there a different axle set-up or was it stock suspension in this car prior to this?
The only "out of the ordinary" thing I see is the finned Buick drums, which I really like!!!!
That appears to be a truck axle, which is rear steer from the factory.
If I'm missing something, please someone point it out to me.
Again, nice job!!!

It's a late 60's Chevy van axle, so the finned drums are stock. Frame is also stock, no boxing, except the mounts. No panhard bar either. Stock '56 steering arm modified and installed at the top side of the backing plate, then connected to stock '56 steering box and arm. Aaron at Southbound Customs did the install and is a great fab guy!

It was closer to stock before, but not. Jeff and I had installed ball joint spacers, longer coil springs, and reworked the spring pockets. This just looks way cleaner/meaner, and works better.
