  1. Explorer rear end

    The car is a 41 ploge or d20 Plymouth rebadged for Canada as dodge wms to wms is 60" I am looking at using the explorer 8.8 but for the look I'm after it's to big If I shorten the long side to the same length of the short side the rear Will be 56-5/8 as per ranger station and u tube videos I have seen has anyone put a rear end that small I think all rears and frame are the same from 40-49 The rims I want to run are like these
  2. Explorer rear end

    I should have stated that s 10 guys are shortening the explorer rear to 56 and 5/8 I want to run a deep dish rim but that might be 2 much

  4. 4 link and explorer rear end

    Yeah im spending the $ on the 4 link instead of a mustang 2 up front the factory did a good job in the front im going to make my own dropped uprights fab up a bracket for shock relocation and put air springs in the pocket and i might get a power steering kit from butches cool stuff this is not going to be an original restoration kind of a hotrod/taildrager and it will be an everyday driver in the summer and maby a few days in the winter i gotta take it in the snow at least once lol

  8. Drop a 41 Dodge with uprigths

    If you have an extra set of uprights cut the bosses off one put in a kingpin for alignment and weld it on then all you do is cut off the original bosses reassemble the suspension and bend your steering arm and thats the quickie version

  11. front air ride using original front suspicion

    Don this has nothing to do with trophies. it has to do with a good ride you cant get a smoother ride then air. also i like the look of a car, truck or what ever you have lowered to lay on the frame when parked its about hot rodding and their are no rules when it comes to that. when the car is done i want to enjoy it driving and not sitting around at a car show
  12. front air ride using original front suspicion

  14. hey just seeing if anyone has put air bags in the factory spring pockets and what was the outcome i am looking at doing this on my 41 so i can drop it on the ground the rear is easy but the front looks a bit tricky i don't want to stub the frame as we all know the factory ifs with a shock relocate is awesome cheers Jeff
