Fatman Fab’s Nice ‘N’ Narrow IFS Kit
AN INDEPENDENT FRONT SUSPENSION IS one of the biggest drivability improvements you can make to your hotrod pickup. Fatman Fabrication’s kits are designed to install easily to your original frame rails without having to cut your truck in half.
You won’t have the handling and tire-wear issues common to Twin I beams, which are made even worse when dropped beams are installed. Track width is correct for the truck, unlike the Crown Vic swap that is 7 inches wider than the stock suspension. Radiator, bumper and sheetmetal mounts are preserved while a nice drop is achieved. Options such as sway bars, dropped spindles, power rack, QA-1 coilovers and air ride let you dial in the stance that suits your style and wallet. Upgraded brake kits include 5x4.5 and 5x5.5-inch bolt patterns to match new 9-inch or original rear axles and wheels. Finish the job with motor mounts, steering connection, and brake and power steering hose kits. Kits cover 1928 through to 1989 models.
