Install the outer mounting bracket as shown by inserting a bolt in the upper left hole and lower right hole. In this photo, the brackets are tack-welded to the 3-inch diameter axle-housing tubes. All of our pickup chassis feature 1-inch diameter X. Take the six-inch shaft that you cut off with the collared end and loosely install it onto the gearbox. We offer either a 2X4 box tube fabricated step over the rear suspension shown or a 2X4 box tube mandrel-bent step over the rear.
It is best to match up the power steering pump to the model of box and hoses you have to make the installation that much easier, You will also need to acquire a new ragjoint or steering coupler. Doesn't get much easier than that - and way easier than a body swap. We can not drill a 5-on-5 pattern in the 11-inch Chevelle rotor. The matching mounting hole on the gearbox that meets the lower bracket hole now must be drilled out. Also the truck does have factory air conditioning. Some deals are just too good to take advantage of. The outer mounting bracket features the required mounting holes with welded-on spacers to position the gearbox in a straight line with the steering column.
Your chassis can be ordered with just about any optional modifications including the ShockWave remote operated air suspension system. Frames should be cheap there; I used to buy tons of 60-66 parts from the Oklahoma panhandle from a picker that hit all those dry states. The new rag joint coupler is assembled with shoulder bolts which you should have gotten when you got the joint. Bolt the rag joint coupler to the stock steering collar that you cut from the steering shaft using the shoulder bolts. Combine these steps over the suspension with ShockWave bags and you're on the ground. I have searched on here and have not found the conclusive answer I was looking for.
You can also see how the optional antisway bar is attached to the rails via the bracket and urethane bushings. For front stance adjustability, it all happens here behind this upper bracket. This direct-replacement chassis will fit the cab and the bed on this chassis, without modifications to the bed floor. I have read that the 73-87 frames have a nasty looking kickdown under the cab. For both the used or new joints, it is very important that you keep the two mounting bolts that conned thejoint to the steering shaft collar. Not included in this kit is the actual 1969-'87 2wd, half-ton Chevy truck gearbox, hoses and power steering pump. The oval shaped holes in the chassis are gauge holes.
So i just put all the front suspension under my 66 frame. Back over to the truck, clean up the frame a little around the area that you will be working on. It will pay off big time. Also included in the Classic Performance Products power steering kit are the required grade-eight hardware for mounting the brackets, and a steel sleeve that will connect the steering column shaft back together after it has been shortened. A disc sander will usually work best.
This truck gets driven regularly to local car shows parades and for ice cream runs and it draws a crowd around it everywhere I take it. Looking at the front of the rear 4-link bracket, you can see our 1-inch diameter X. We use the '67-72 Chevelle spindle with bolt-on steering arms, rotors and calipers. I get about 50 e mails a year asking for them. The paint on the truck is in great condition with no flaws and the same goes for the interior.
In the next photo, you can see the four mounting-holes. A hole punch and hammer will knock out the rest of the remaining rivet. To make sure that you scribe a straight line, C. The two knob adjustable model is our top of the line. This crossmember adds more strength to the frame since it is welded on the inside of the rails and on the outside of the rails as well. The other holes on the box remain threaded.
The 1-inch diameter optional antisway bar is a must-have item if you want flat cornering and a great handling pickup. Roughly two inches must be cut off the shaft. Two ½-inch Allen bolts secure the bracket to the upper A-arm tower. We include bed-and-body mounts in their stock locations on all of our chassis as shown in this photo. Both brackets will offer you an adjustable stance at the rear. That seems to be the general idea when it comes to the world of aftermarket parts and components for our favorite muscle cars and recently, trucks. But, something like that is indirect and more of a personal touch.
Other parts that we do not manufacture such as brakes, steering racks, ball joints, brake flex lines, power steering lines, etc carry their own manufacturers warranties. These are shoulder bolts and they prevent the installer from overtightening the ragjoint during assembly. This is what the C. Prices subject to change without notice. For superior handling and cornering, our 1-inch diameter antisway bars front-and-rear are must have items. But, no one could come up with a kit that was as simple as one-two-three to install, as well as being engineered properly and safely. Not for sale, nothing to see here — now run along.
