Newman Car Creations incorporates modern suspension technologies into classic trucks-specifically '55-59 Chevy and '53-56 Ford trucks-by fabricating chassis to except late-model Corvette suspension. They accomplish this by starting with an oversized boxed framerail that has been purpose built and contoured for maximum rigidity, while keeping safety at the top of their list. The aluminum-intensive Corvette suspension is the core of Newman Car Creations conversion. By using the stock geometry of the Corvette suspension, they are able to take advantage of GM's multi-million dollar research and development effort that delivers the well-mannered and performance-based ride you will experience. Newman Car Creations also utilizes mono leaf springs to cut down on unsprung weight, and proper use of C4 suspension, as well as a Dana 44 differential housing and cover. Newman also gives customers the option to run any motor and transmission with specific mounting pads for each setup.
