Item Details

Cross Steering vs. Traditional Steering

Traditional steering provides an original, period look, but will only work in these applications:

  • Four bar setup with '68-'73 Mustang box
  • Split wishbone or hairpin radius rod with reversed Corvair or '48-'56 Ford Puckup steering box
  • Parallel Steering Set-Up Guide

Cross steering (using a Vega box) is the preferred method for nearly all cross spring, beam axle suspensions. Ford used this design from 1935-on.

  • Less bumpsteer
  • More comfortable steering column angle
  • Frees up foot pedal / bellhousing room
  • Cleaner vehicle profile 
  • Cross Steering Guide


  1. Chevy-style spindles are specifically designed for use on tube axles. A shorter, thicker axle stub makes this a slightly stronger spindle ideal for use with heavier street rods. Ford-style spindles are generally your best choice when using an original Ford axle or an aftermarket I-beam axle.
  2. For use on cars up to 2800 pounds with rear discs or on cars up to 2400 pounds with rear drums.
  3. If using steel wheels with this kit, you will also need to purchase (2) steel shims part 835-3007500. These shims will prevent steel wheelsfrom galling the aluminum hub.
  4. Rubber brake hoses generally cannot be adapted to Wilwood calipers. The caliper inlet fitting is a 1/8-27 NPT. The preferred method is to use steel adapter fittings at the caliper, either straight, 45 or 90 degree and enough steel braided line to allow for full suspension travel and turning radius, lock to lock.
Some parts are not legal for use in California or other states with similar laws/regulations

  • Speedway Motors and Classic Trucks joined teams to build a 1952 Chevy truck for the newest Week to Wicked build. Jason and Tom talk about the Speedway Motors Mustang II front suspension kit used on the build.
  • In this episode, Project Chevelle gets coilovers and a much-needed altitude adjustment. Watch as we install QA1 bolt-on coilover kits front and rear, then dial in the perfect stance and shock settings. Our old Chevelle is really starting to look mean!
