  1. Hello to everyone I have an opportunity to purchase a front suspension from a 1951 Plymouth Cranbrook with all new components at a good price Can someone tell me if it would fit my 1940 Dodge business coupe It looks the same except for the upper control arms , on my Dodge they are a cast steel and on the Plymouth they stamp steel welded together
  2. I've done this before, but forgot how to do it. I was surprised that the shop manual doesn't say what to do. I put a floor jack under the lower control arm and jacked it up. Do I remove the four bolts holding down the upper control arm pivot bar, or should I remove the upper control arm pin and nut first? Or do something else?
  3. I am replacing my king pins on my '49 Woodie. I knew it was coming because I wanted to get it aligned a couple years ago and the guy told me I had to do the king pins for him to do an accurate job. last year I started to get a good amount of vibration at about 70 MPH, so, now that our Governor has again shuttered Ca., I figure i have plenty of time on my hands. This does not look extremely hard, but, the shop that was going to do the pressing and reaming for me is out because the guy who does this kind of work is "down for the count" according to his son, and thinks he'll be out f
  4. I am replacing the king pins in my '49 Woodie. I am not disassembling the A-Arms or replacing the bushings/seals. While cleaning the lower A-Arm, I might have allowed the pivot bar to rotate. I am not sure, but I used a small guage wire through the pivot bar to attach to the A-Arm to maintain the orientation and one came off during the cleaning/painting process. My manual has the attached diagram showing the correct positioning of the pivot to the A-Arm. I have a couple laser tools that I am using try to check that my readings are as desired from the layout. I have a couple problems.
  5. Hello All, first time poster, first time builder, looking for some help on a new '51 Suburban project. My grandfather and I are working on this one together; he's lending me his expertise and shop space and I'm giving him a chance to spend some more time in the garage, "grandma-approved". He's been hot rodding Chevys and Fords since he was 14, but when looking for a project to take on we fell in love with this era of Suburbans and it's the first MOPAR he's worked on. We're sticking pretty traditional with our plans for modifications, including a Mustang II style IFS kit. I've seen a lot of deb
  6. Here I am again! I beginning to think that the help I need is mental for starting this project.. Here it goes: I am working on my front suspension starting with the kingpins. Then on to the coils, control arms, etc. I am following the shop manual and have gotten to the point where I need to remove the locking pins and top seals again, according to the manual. It was fairly easy getting to this point. Now, following the obscure directions in the book, I got the locking pin on the first one(driver's side ) to move approximately a 1/4 inch and it won't budge from there. Likewise, following t
  7. Excessive play was found in the upper control arm joint. I am preparing to replace the upper outer bushings as they seem to had worn loose. However, I'd like to learn from you, are there any other issues in the front suspension I should check at the same time? Also the best way to do the replacement to avoid pitfalls, Obviously I will be messing the camber angle when replacing the bushings - any tricks to do it smart way? Any tips to adjust the camber without special tools?
  8. The springs on my woody are no longer as springy as they should be. Basically it rides like a truck! I have removed the #2 leaf from all the stacks and it still rides pretty rough. Part of the problem is I think the springs have lost some of their arc, and they also have pretty serious grooves worn in them. My Dad drove used the wagon on an almost daily basis from 1949 until 1987, and has a LOT of miles on the original springs (and everything else!) I have replaced everything except the leaf springs themselves, so it is not any of the other parts. Does anyone know of a source for r
  9. These " wedges " were under the bolts on the LCA pivot bar. I thought I took more photos during disassembaly but this one is the best view. WHERE DO THEY GO ? ( oh and what are they for ? ) None of my parts , or shop books show or mention them. I believe they were on the driver side, rear set of bolts, but cannot recall. I was too concerned that day about the coil springs killing me. :-) Thanks ! Clay
  10. I removed the rear fenders in prepping for paint and found this: The tire is rubbing as the suspention travels. The car has new shocks installed about a year ago. Any thoughts as what to do???
  11. So I really have no Idea if this is going to affect the ride to much but I hope it works! Almost complete with the front end and I found a pair of air shocks from O'reillys Auto Parts. Had to press a metal sleeve out of one end and modify the size of the rubber hole with my drill. Got one on tonight and hope to have the other one on tomorrow! I'm looking for a little bit lower ride and stance on the truck and thought this may work. My plan is to rob an air tank off one of my old big rigs and install a small 12V air compressor in the truck. When I'm out cruising I'll try to have enough air in t
