    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.

    Speedway Curtis-style radius rods have a classic shape that's more distinctive than most hairpin-style designs. At 36" in length, these are ideal for non-fendered street rods. The axle ends are tapped 5/8" NF RH threads, while the chassis ends have female 11/16" RH threads to accept Ford tie rod ends for the perfect nostalgic touch.

    NOT for use with rear suspension.

  • Forged Adjustable Spring Perches, Zinc Plated Steel
    Forged Adjustable Spring Perches, Zinc Plated Steel
    x
                

    Eliminate alignment and binding problems on your straight axle front end! Adjustable spring perches allow you to fine-tune your front spring to get the best possible ride and handling characteristics. Perches are forged zinc plated plain steel construction and are long enough to work with lower shock mounts.

    • Adjustable pivot shank measures 2" long with 7/8" of threads
    • Use with 1-3/4" wide shackle/spring.
    • Includes nylock nuts.

    These adjustable spring perches replicate the same spring length required as the non adjustable original style. Standard 48” axles with 36-3/8" or 36-1/2” perch centers will still require a 31-1/4” spring and the narrower 46” axles with 2” shorter perch centers will use the 29” spring.
