July 26, 2004Looking to put an IFS package under my 50 Chevy truck and haven't seen any detailed discussions since Jan of '03. I'm hoping some of you guys out there have done a few of these since then and would offer your opinions. I'm looking at Chassisworks, TCI, Heidts, and Performance Auto. I'm looking for good quality but not a lot of the frills options they offer like huge rotors or lotsa chrome/billet.

July 26, 2004I've got the TCI rolling chassis with their front end. Very nice piece. I did alot of home work and Companies like TCI, Fatman fabrications, Heidts and all the well known companies put out some really nice gear. I guess it's a matter of choice. And which one you prefer. I've heard alot of good things and very few bad things about the companies that offer front end kits. If I knew something I'd share everyone I know with a front suspension is happy with their product. Good luck.
August 12, 2004Thanks for your thoughts Ironman! Have decided to go with TCI. Saves a little on freight also......
March 14, 2005I think I'll run the TCI Custom IFS set-up on my 53 F100...
March 30, 2006Check out the "Ultra Cruise" IFS offered by " Classic Performance Products" at www.classicperform.com ..
I have it on my 56 F100 w/ power rack and pinion steering ---very happy!!!
March 30, 2006have put in a bunch of them. just finished putting in a No Limit Wide Ride in a 56 chev pickup truck. came with tubular a arms, coil over shocks, sway bar. Was by far the best one I have put in. Box the frame drop in the cross member, center it up weld it and start putting it together. come's with the upper a arms mounting points all ready in place and lower ones too. took about 3 hours of welding for boxing plates and cross member. Over all about 5 1/2 hours and tires we're on the ground again. you can check it out at www.nolimit.net

March 31, 2006I am using the Dakota conversion by Industrial Chassis in Lake Havasu, AZ. Several others in the club also use this and it is great. A few years ago this was probably the state-of-the-art front end, you know a 1/2 ton front end for a 1/2 ton truck. It was logical to me, but time marches on. Bill has put in a ton of front ends. If he says No Limit is the way to go right now, don't mess around......DO IT!
