Armed And Dangerous
New from Early Classic Enterprises is their drop-center crossmember and rectangular tubing trailing arm kit for '63-72 GM trucks. The new center crossmember, also known as the trailing arm crossmember, offers 2.5 inches more ground clearance, a raised driveline hoop, and passage for an exhaust up to 3-inch-diameter. This powdercoated beast is fabricated from 1/4-inch-thick laser-cut and formed steel plate to be stronger and more functional than the factory unit it replaces. The heavy-duty replacement trailing arms feature a one-piece heavy-wall construction engineered to handle serious horsepower. These ultra clean-looking replacement arms are supplied with new U-bolts, coil spring retainers, polygraphite bushings, an integrated emergency brake cable bracket, and all necessary hardware. Designed to install in the original location without modification, these American-made beauties are completely TIG welded and powdercoated to provide a lifetime of rust-free service. These parts are available in a kit or individually. For more info, contact Early Classic Enterprises at 559-291-1611, or visit www.earlyclassic.com.
Bolt And Go
Speedway Motors now offers a safe and affordable bolt-on disc brake kit for '37-47 Ford 1/2-ton pickups. The Speedway kit is designed to easily install big 11 3/4-inch disc brake rotors and GM-style calipers on your original '37-47 axle while retaining the original Ford 5 on 5.5-inch bolt circle. The deluxe kit includes new rotors, rebuilt calipers, caliper brackets, pads, bearings, seals, and all required hardware. A basic kit is also available that includes just brackets and a parts list of components you can source from your local parts store or salvage yard. The kit will work with spindles having either original steering arms or flat-steel steering arms; it will not work with forged aftermarket steering arms. Wheels must have a 3 7/16-inch center hole and be designed for disc brake applications. For more info, call Speedway Motors at 800-979-0122, or visit www.speedwaymotors.com.
