Congratulations on your 35. That will be an interesting ride. Please post some pictures when you can and details on condition and your plans for it.

Most people on here will suggest you rebuild the original suspension. It was designed for your  vehicle and unless you plan to use it for other things than it was built for, it will work like it was designed to. Originality is the main goal of most people on these boards. Good luck on your project.

I've got 4 boys, couldn't imagine what you're going through! Sweet IH, I say replace the wood with steel. My first build was a '73 Travelall its sitting on a '97 Dodge 4x4 2500 chassis, I was trying to get a '58 Travelall for my 14yr old but the owner wasn't budging on letting it go.

Yeah I also have a 57 d200 on s10 chassis that needs finishing with fabrication work . a 58 chevy 3800 dumpbed. And many newer ones. I could tell Jacob had the gift/car sickness like I do but more advanced at 3 than I was at 15. He wanted to grow up and work on cars like his daddy.
