Fat Man Fabrications Affordable IFS
From Fat Man Fabrication
This trick kit gives you the same ride height and width as 4" dropped and 2" narrowed axle, but with independent ride at an AFFORDABLE price!
This is the most affordable IFS for these cars with proper geometry, stance, and tire-to-fender clearance.
'28-'34 FORD, '28-'33 GM, '28-'32 MOPAR
And many other cars with similar fender lines where a MII IFS won't fit correctly.
Our AFFORDABLE IFS kit uses many OEM parts in order to keep the maintenance easy and the cost down. Your wheels will be 56" hub-hub, with the spindle center 1" above the bottom of your frame. Proper Ackerman, Positive Camber Gain and Antidive geometry are all designed in, along with a rear steer rack for splash pan clearance.
To achieve maximum strength, our main crossmember is made of 5/16" wall material, our tubular arms of .188 wall seamless tubing rather than the .090 wall used by many of our competitors, and 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 250#/in spring rate, where a front spring will be more in the 450#/in. range. The simple fact is that the same spring size cannot be made 2.5 times as strong without losing ride quality. Thats why we use the proven Mustang II spring and shocks: you get maximum ride quality and save money too!
