        why people use HQ shit in this day and age I have no-idea, front and rear subframes out of something with decent suspension would be soooooo much better!

            HQ drives just fine.

              LOL! HQ's Retard Tuned Suspension was shit back then now you struggle to find parts for them! If you wanted to keep it ford AU IRS/IFS would be a better start, JZA80/Soarer front and rear subframes even better...

              can understand the love for the F Truck and like the look but having HQ parts on it would be like waking up next to a tranny and being ok with it!

                  Struggle to find parts? So, you've not even looked I take it...
                  What's so shit about the HQ/WB suspension then? Considering we're talking about a 1961 F100, not a time attack car.

                    Engineering is one big reason HQ suspension and chassis gets used. Lots of good aftermarket options to make them handle well but its all obviously shit because only Japanese cars go around corners and are awesome

                      Would have loved to get a roadster shop chassis out of the states and wheel it under- But engineering would have been a nightmare. This is the most feasible way to build a truck and have it legal and engineered.

                      Tell me how to graft the JZ80 subframe to a F truck body, and get it engineered for a reasonable sum... Struggle to get parts for HQ- c'mon man, shit is everywhere! Including aftermarket tubular arms etc. As mentioned, this is a bagged cruiser, not a Circuit car.

                      Tell you what- you go and build it your way and be happy, i'll build it mine and be happy

                        Thanks mate

                        Both those wheels are for the front- i just mocked the RHF wheel on the rear so i can measure offset. I'm having a borg warner made with a tru trac and 31 spline axles, i'll also get it shortened to allow more dish on the rear wheels, rears will be 20x11's with 305/30's.

                          Because it's cost effective, legal, easy to source and is a 1000 times better than the factory front end in these things.
                          In saying that, going tube axle and leaf springs like a gasser is an improvement over the twin I beam!
