Week to Wicked Product Feature: Speedway Rear Suspension
Speedway Motors and Classic Trucks teamed up to build a 1952 Chevy truck in celebration of Speedway Motors’ 65th Anniversary. Jason and Tom take a few minutes to talk about the rear suspension the team used on the truck.
In case you haven’t been following the build, Speedway Motors and Classic Trucks teamed up to build a 1952 Chevy truck from the ground up in just a week. We’ve covered many of the parts that made their way into the build, and it’s time for another installment. This round it is the Speedway Motors 1947-1954 Chevy Pickup Four-Bar Rear Suspension kit.
As a fully adjustable triangulated four-link system, this kit is a straight bolt-in setup. It is set up to use urethane bushings, and being adjustable you can alter the pinion angle to suit your build. As an added benefit, the team at Speedway Motors engineered this kit to also be able to bolt into a stock chassis.
The rearend in the kit is a 60” wide Ford 9”, making any potential gear changes a snap, with a simple removal and replace with a different third member. The kit used in the build is outfitted with AFCO coilover shocks, and as always there are a multitude of options for ride height adjustment by different springs, coilovers, or even single and double adjustable shocks.
