Default Front suspension

Hello, That looks like an awsome idea for your front suspension. How long is the mono leaf spring? I am building a 31 Studebaker Coupe and really don't want to spend the big bucks to convert. I have a 46 Ford axle but been trying to figure out how to adapt to my Stude. Your work looks really good, should work. Let me know if you can the lenght of your spring. Thanks, Dennis

Dennis, I used a 26 inch mono spring from Speedway, as well as their shackle mount and shackle kit. I used a plain shackle mount, but had to be real careful where the bolts ended up. I designed the frame along with the front end so that it would all work out. So far, so good Thanks for the questions and the compliments. If I can help any more, let me know.

Thanks everyone. It's very encouraging to have your work appreciated! Here's a few more pictures. Progressing slowly - the shop is pretty chilly until the woodstove gets things warmed up, and I've been busy getting my son ready to move overseas for a semester of school. I'm still working on the floor, and lately on fitting the transmission hump (which I have no picture of yet - that's coming)

Thanks RiverRat, and everyone, for the support and positive comments. Progress has been slow lately, but not for lack of trying! This damn transmission hump has taken longer than the rest of the floor did, I think there's 8 or more hours in it! (not bad for a guy my age - an 8 hour hump should be something to brag about!!!)
