Dear Welder Series… Twin I-Beam Conversion?

Dear Welder Series…
Have you or any of your customers ever used the mustang IFS to replace the twin I beam front end?
What measurements would be needed to attempt it?
I realize this is a pretty broad question, but I am just wondering if it’s possible.

Dear Danny…
Danny, some twin I-beams have been replaced with our 60″ MII kit.  Here is a list of applications that we are aware of:

What year is your truck?

What size tire do you plan to use?

With the frame at the ride height you plan, what is the dimension from the ground to the bottom of the frame a couple of inches ahead and behind the axle?

From the ground to the top of the frame at the same points?

The inside and outside frame width 4″ ahead and behind spindle centerline?

I’ll get back to you after I get those dimensions.

Thanks for looking at Welder Series parts.

      Jerry, this will take some planning to get all the pivot points in the right places. Mock everything in place to see how it will look and to see where the various parts will attach to the frame.

      This probably won’t be easy, but it will save time and probably money in the long run.

      Thanks for looking at Welder Series parts.
