    If you still need a front axle assembly for your pre-2008 Total Performance T-Bucket, you had better read this. The Total Performance T-Bucket spindles were a hybrid that combined Econoline kingpins, early Chevy bracket mounting tabs and early Ford wheel bearing surfaces.  Unfortunately these spindles are no longer being manufactured. Speedway has a kit that includes the axle, leaf spring, shackles, radius rods, '49-'54 Chevy car style spindles with kingpins and hardware. This kit will get you away from the hybrid spindles and allows you to run any of our '49-'54 Chevy style brake kits. 

    Steering arms and tie rod assemblies sold separately. Currently available in plain steel only.

The coilover rear suspension uses traditional-style radius rods and a panhard bar, with all necessary mounts welded in place. If you're looking for an affordable, well-engineered T-bucket chassis requiring only basic mechanical skills to assemble, the Nostalgia T is for you! 

    Shown with optional rearend and engine mounts installed. This part number does not include a rear axle housing or engine/transmission mounts (as pictured). If you wish to add these items to your chassis, simply purchase these items along with your frame kit. 

    All of our T kits are also available with chrome suspension.  This option includes chrome plated: front and rear hairpins, rear coilovers, front axle, front leaf spring, front shocks, steering arms, tie rod, drag link, and related hardware.
