    I know there is a guy in USA that manufacture spindle like the standard spindle. It has a lower look for the 1947 - 1954 Chevrolet pickup. The spindle & and rear blocks/brackets that suits this setup lower the pickup truck 3" and 4 " i think ? I am not shore if this setup provides opportunities use of disc brakes in front and rear ?

    I need his address or his site adres. Hope anyone can help with this information ?

    Regards Martinius/Norway

    Using a dropped front axle without modifying pitman arm and drag link geometry can cause bump steer. I don't know the answer to this problem, but I recommend finding out.

    The old standard for minimizing bump steer is to have the drag link run parallel to the floor so whether spring is extended or compressed it will displace the steering arm a like amount. If a pitman arm is lengthened much to get level the steering effort will increase. We are right now installing our first electric power steering (EPS) on an AD and will let you in on the results. No belts, pulleys, hoses, brackets, or pumps. Others have used the Saturn Vue but we are giving a 2006 Prius a try.
