Our dropped axles for your classic Ford F1 pickup will get the front end down where you want it. And with the additional negative camber built into the axle, this is designed to work best with radial tires to withstand the rigors of driving on modern roads at higher speeds. The center portion of the axle is made of 2" DOM tubing while the ends are CNC milled from solid steel. These axles give you 2" of drop on the 57-60 chassis. Tie rod drops required, U-bolts sold separately.
If using this axle in conjunction with drop springs, you may encounter bump steer or tie rod issues.
