      I'd like to try something different for one of my T builds. I was thinking about adding a straight axle and coilovers for the front suspension. Any ideas and pics from you masters would be a great help. Thanks in advance.

    I've been around hot Straight Front Axle rods all my life and I sure don't remember too many T's, actually none, with a straight axle whether they were hot Straight Front Axle rods,drag cars or Bonneville cars.......Mike

    I remember a few with coil springs but the only T I can remember with coil overs on the front was some wild trailer queen with Indy car type suspension.

    I can remember a few with coil overs and straight axles built in the 80's, but I don't think coil overs were around much in the 60's

    Deuces-wild was talking about installing a straight axle and coil-overs. They were not made during the same era. Again,I'm not saying there aren't any straight axled T's.It's just that I've never seen one, especially with coil-overs. I've seen T's with standard ,curved end axles and coils but not straight.It was never a popular conversion in the 50's-70's.......Mike.......[B][U]Note[/U][/B]; one car that might have a straight axle would have been Wild Willie Borsch's car named the "Winged Express". Google his name or car name and you should find some type of photos of it.
