Why is Scott’s Hotrods IFS Different?  

Our Independent Front Suspension is NOT a Mustang II.  We do not use a 3-piece style crossmember with spring pocket hats. We do not use T-Bolt slider adjusters that CAN come loose.  We only use Coilovers or Airbags w/ external shock.  Our Suspension can be dialed in precisely and can never be knocked out of alignment.  We 100% TIG Weld our kits.  We only use 5/8″ Grade 8 Hardware.

Check out our IFS QC Gallery to view a wide variety of IFS Kits we recently shipped out. 

Scott’s Spring Pocket Replacement IFS is designed for vehicles that feature a Spring Pocket Frame from the factory.  These IFS kits come with 2”x4” frame rail stubs welded into our 1-piece crossmember. These kits are available with coilovers or airbags & shocks.  You will have to cut out the spring pocket frame section on your existing frame and then graph in the new crossmember.  Yes, this is a little more work than our Standard IFS install and it is totally worth it!  No other company can improve your handling characteristics like Scott’s Hotrods ‘n Customs.

Scott's Hotrods Spring Pocket Replacement IFS Quote Form

Mark the wheel centerline of the wheel on the fender and on the garage floor.

Cut your frame directly in front of and behind the stock spring pocket, removing the stock crossmember.  You can use a Sawzall®, cut off wheel or any other cutting tool.

Mock Up the crossmember in position. You will have to graph your stock frame rails to the frame rail sections that we have welded to the IFS crossmember. 

NOTE:  The higher you mount the crossmember, the lower the front end of your vehicle will sit.  The lower you mount the crossmember, the higher the front end will sit.

We recommend that you install the A-Arms on the driver’s side so you can mock up your wheel & tire to determine proper crossmember placement.  The Lower A-Arm should be level with the crossmember at Ride Height.  A-Arm installation instructions are explained later in the instructions.

Scott’s Hotrods believes in Quality, Creativity, Engineering & Workmanship.  These qualities go into all of its suspension kits.  Scott’s does not settle for inferior materials or products and neither should you when it comes to the suspension on your custom hot rod.  No matter how pretty your paint sparkles, how plush your seats feel or how much power you say you have under the hood, if your vehicle handles and rides poorly, nothing else matters.

Scott’s Hotrods manufactures the BEST Independent Front Suspension (IFS) for ANY Year, Make & Model vehicle from 1925 to 1987.  No other suspension manufacturer comes close.  Scott’s IFS kits have never been and will never be Mustang II Kits.  Scott’s True IFS kits are not universal and are designed for each and every vehicle application.  Although many kits appear very similar, all the dimensions and geometry are engineered to work for specific applications.

All of the IFS kits are built from scratch materials in Knoxville, Tennessee.  Metal is sourced from trusted, quality sources and delivered weekly.  Scott’s in-house CNC Mills and Lathes cut many of the components used on each and every kit including the Cross Tubes, Ball Joint Cups, Rack & Shock Bungs, Stainless Steel Adjustable Upper A-Arm Rod Ends and A-Arm Tubes.  The in-house HD Plasma table cuts all of the tabs.  Every IFS kit is 100% TIG-welded and Quality Checked before it is packed up and shipped out to the customer.
