The adapters must be welded to your truck frame - and you must supply your own Ford / Lincoln rear suspension subframe.
The entire IRS from the Ford / Lincoln is used... The only thing left for you to purchase are shock absorbers! You utilize the differential, axles, control arms, spindles, springs, sway bar, hubs and the brakes... No additional, costly brakes or hard-to-find pieces. Any replacement parts can be purchased at an auto parts store or your local Ford / Lincoln dealership... you can even use the wheels and tires - although you will likely want to upgrade them... The adapter brackets bolt to the subframe using the original mounting locations. Click here for TruckIRS Installation Details
Now you can put an Independent Rear suspension under your 1948 - 1979 Ford or 1955 - 1959 Chevy Truck or Ford Ranger.
