What Are the Signs of Suspension Problems?

Front suspension deficiencies could cause uneven tire wear, excessive steering play, and increased bouncing over bumps. Obviously, uneven tire wear could be attributed to a bad alignment or faulty front suspension components, like inner or outer tie rods, or both. Excessive steering wheel play could signal a bad steering box, worn out steering components, or a bad steering column rag joint, depending on your automotive application. Steering wheel play means you have a dead spot in your steering when driving down the road, and when turning the wheel, it takes an increase in steering input from the steering wheel for the car to react. Increased bounce or suspension float, well, that means your front struts or shocks are shot, and need replacing.

What Are the Different Types of Front Suspensions?

There are two main front suspension designs, the early straight axle front end that was used until the mid to late 1940s on most domestic vehicles, and the independent front suspension (IFS) that replaced it. A straight axle front suspension, which is popular in a lot of traditional hot rods and street rods, uses one solid beam going across the front end from spindle to spindle with a single transverse mounted leaf spring. Everything on the front suspension is bolted to this beam. The good part about the straight axle kit is that it is a great period correct look. A straight axle front suspension uses a standard or split wishbone configuration, or optionally a 4-link suspension/4-bar arrangement to locate the axle in relation to the frame. A split wishbone front suspension is mostly for street rod applications fitting 1937-1948 Ford-style spindles.

The bad part is that this assembly can cause questionable handling if you are not used to it. With a straight axle front end, bumps and dips in the road are transferred through the whole car, which is this suspension arrangement’s downfall. If going through a bumpy curve, a straight axle front end can get pretty upset, causing understeer, and a general unnerving feeling, but again, it is the “go to” for traditional builds and there are updated components that improve the traditional straight axle’s handling for today’s roads.

A straight axle front end for a hot rod is a little different compared to a straight axle for gasser applications. Typically, a straight axle conversion kit for gassers features leaf springs situated on top of the axle and located at each end of the axle. A gasser front end is purely designed to raise the car’s front end for that Gasser look. 

An independent front suspension (IFS) is a lot easier to live with daily, and this suspension arrangement is what most vehicles rely on today. Each side of the suspension is independent from the other, which keeps most of the road’s bumps and dips from being transferred throughout the whole car. With an IFS suspension kit, you still have a crossmember and a sway bar, but then on each side you will have a shock or strut, and a spring for damping that works with one or more control arms for suspension articulation that is independent from the opposite side. We offer chassis specific IFS kits as well as a universal IFS kit in several widths for just about anything you are building.

Why Is the Mustang II Front Suspension So Popular?

The Mustang II was made from 1974-1978 by Ford Motor Company. The car’s front suspension featured rack and pinion steering, compact packaging, and improved steering geometry for greater handling characteristics. Early hot rodders cribbed the Mustang II’s front crossmember and grafted it into numerous hot rods. Later, the hot rod aftermarket took the Mustang II front end design even further by producing many complete front suspension kits to facilitate engine swaps and larger front brakes. Adding a Mustang II front suspension to a First-Generation Mustang (1964-1973), as an example, enables the removal of that car’s shock towers, freeing up a lot of room for wider engines and power adders. Mustang II front suspension systems are available for a wide variety of vehicles today due to these attributes.

What Are the Different Ways of Checking a Vehicle’s Front Suspension?

There are two great ways to check the functionality of your vehicle’s front suspension. First, if you think the front shocks or struts are bad, simply by pushing up and down on the vehicle’s front end will bring that issue to the forefront. If the vehicle continues to bounce after pushing it up and down, you already know the shocks or struts need replacing. The second way of checking your front suspension is by grabbing the front tire at the top and bottom, or side to side, and see if it has any excessive movement either way. If the wheel has excessive play during either movement, your front-end needs attention. Excessive movement can mean bad wheel bearings, defective inner or outer tie rods, or other steering system maladies. 

What Parts Comes in A Front Suspension Kit?

A front-end suspension kit is going to include everything needed to repair or upgrade every component, usually including the control arms, stock or drop ride height spindles, new shocks or optional coilovers, the major steering components, and in many cases, new brakes. In some instances, a front suspension kit come with all necessary hardware, but others require the purchase of additional hardware, so when looking at the front-end suspension kit for your vehicle, check to make sure what hardware is included. Furthermore, some front suspension kits are more basic, such as our drop axle kit, featuring a straight axle with a split wishbone or 4-link front suspension arrangement. Whereas, other kits are more comprehensive, featuring everything you need to rebuild your car’s front end. It is all a matter of what you need to get your car on the road or back on track, but either way, we have your solution just a call or click away!
