Where do the springs mount ontop of the axle or can they be put low on the back side? I am building a rat rod with a s10 rearend the frame is based on a model t with a 13" kickup. The frame is 31" wide and the rearend is 48" wide backing plate to backing plate. Do you think this kit would work for my build?

Yes this kit should work just fine for you. The rear springs are intended to be mounted centered on top of the rear end housing.

About the Lower Rear Axle Bracket The lower rear axle bracket in this Deluxe Coil spring Rear Susp Kit is made for axle tubes of 3" diameter. the axle I'm using is 3.25" diameter. Do you make or modify a bracket for this size? If not can I modify the existing bracket by increasing the axle tube cut out dia? I'm using a Ford 8.8" rear axle from a 1999 Ford Explorer.

In many cases the rear suspension kit number 91649021 requires modification to meet the diameter of different manufacturers housing tubes. Whether to enlarge or decrease the size on the brackets for the housing tubes is up to the installer. We apologize but at this time do not offer different diameter housing brackets.

Will this kit work to change leaf to coil rear suspension on 1972 F-100? I want to change my `72 F-100 to either a coil spring or a 4 link rear suspension.

The springs in this kit and some of the kit components are for the lighter hot rod applications such as T-buckets and roadsters and have been used on vehicles up to 2500 pounds. With the application of your 72 Ford pickup you would need heavier and larger diameter springs to handle the weight requirements. Some of the parts could be used and modified as needed such as the axle housing mount number 91720243 and the frame bracket which would require alteration under number 91645100. Then you could use 5” rear springs such as number 252510 in around a 350 or 400 weight range. You could use the entire kit and then substitute the different springs if that is desired. It would change the kit price by merely $10.00. Otherwise we would recommend a heavier kit such as our ladder bars number 91645119 and the other necessary components.

It is very likely that the air shocks are a large portion of your poor ride quality. They are known for making a vehicle ride very stiff. We would suggest first trying a different set of shocks. If you want to convert to a coil spring suspension then this kit could certainly be a good starting point for you.

This kit is more like what you would see on a Model T roadster or maybe even some custom Rat Rods. Our part number 91649060 would be better suited for a 32 Ford.

I'm building a 1940 Chevy rat rod pick up with shortened bed and SBC with no fenders, hood or running boards. Will the springs be heavy enough that are in this kit?

Springs in this kit are a specific diameter and rates other than the 175# are not available. They are commonly used on T buckets and rods in the 2000 pound total weight category such as T buckets and light roadsters. If your application is heavier, you may have to add another source to help carry the weight.
