Why is Scott’s Hotrods Different?  

Each and every Bolt-On Independent Front Suspension kit we manufacture is vehicle specific.  We only make Bolt-On IFS kits for select vehicles, none of which are Mustang II based.

An extremely popular truck, the 1955-1959 Chevy/GMC has always been a top seller of our weld-in IFS systems.  Fortunately, the Chevy/GMC’s frame has led to an easy transition for a bolt-on IFS.  The ’55-’59 Chevy/GMC Bolt-On kit is only available with Coilovers.  The way the Bolt-On kit is designed we can not build a SuperSlam Airbag kit correctly.  If you desire a SuperSlam Airbag kit, you will have to order a Weld-On kit.

Like all Scott’s standard IFS systems, each unit is built to spec, individually for each customer.  This allows us to “fine-tune” the suspension.  For those looking to have a tight handling coilover suspension, we can set it up to be fully tunable and adjustable to get that track handling on the weekends, and a comfortable ride for everyday use. There is no other 100% bolt-on suspension for these trucks.  Scott’s is the only true bolt-on that will get you installed and driving in a weekend.  Bolt-On Kits are also available for ’48-’52 Ford Trucks, ’48-’54 Chevy Trucks & ’63-’87 Chevy Trucks.

Scott's Hotrods BOLT-ON IFS Quote Form

Unlike a few other bolt-in units, the Chevy/GMC’s does not have any pre-existing bolt holes to line up the Scott’s Hotrods crossmembers.  Because of that, holes will need to be drilled in to your existing frame as well as rack notches may or may not be needed based on ride height.

A qualified professional mechanic or fabricator with the technical understanding of product function and installation procedures must install all Scott’s Hotrods products. Be sure to properly bleed your power rack
