I'm running quarter eliptics on the front of my '41 Chevy P.U. Works fine, adapted the stock '41 axle. Using shackles and upper links with a lower wishbone. I have a bunch of pics in my album that you can look at. I named my front suspension Kamakazi Three link. Later, Bob

Here's an early pic, the sleeved holes in the top of the frame are for the height-adjustment allen bolts with locknuts.

If you look in the "Gallery" section under "New Albums" I have 5 pics with some descriptions in there. "Kamakazi Three Link" I bought the springs from Speedway. One advantage is that the spring mount is under the engine instead of under the radiator.
