    Default IFS for C-1

    I've been toying (really wanting to) with the idea of putting a Jim Meyer IFS under the '59. Just waiting for the boss to let me spend the $$$. However, in a recent issue of Vette magazine I saw an ad for an IFS kit from an outfit in North Carolina called "Studley's Independent Rods". It looks to be quite a bit less expensive than the Jim Meyer set up. Has anyone heard of these guys ? Anyone had any experience with them ? Almost seems too good to be true (the ole "you get what you pay for scenario"), but if its real and they're reputable and I hear good things about them, I'm going to order one tomorrow !

    Any thoughts are appreciated,

    Bernie O

    They have been around for several years that I know of. I have been looking at their extended Model A Truck cab for a few years. I wish they had more pictures of that suspension. It looks pretty nice. There may be more info on their Facebook page.

    I put a JMR front and rear suspension in my '60 when I redid it 11 years ago. Its a great set up. Here is a link to a free ebook I put together on the build of my car. If you have questions let me know...
