March 28, 2011 Wauconda, IL Heidts Hot Rods, a division of Heidts Automotive, now offers a Superide II ™ IFS (Independent Front Suspension) kit for 1948 – 1952 Ford F1 Pickup Truck. The NEW Heidts Superide II ™ IFS features uses the Mustang II dropped spindle to allow for a front mount rack & pinion unit, to ease motor installation. It uses a geometry design very similar to the Mustang II, which works well on the classic trucks. The upper control arms use threaded adjusters for the wheel alignment. These threaded adjusters, unlike eccentric adjusters, will never “slip” and lose alignment no matter how big a bump you hit. “Smooth” describes the ride: very low and highly steerable with no bumpsteer and built-in anti-dive. Installing the 1-piece crossmember is an easy one-step operation.
