Chrysler B-Body Rear Suspension Installation
NOTE: Remember to clamp ALL brackets in place for a trial fit BEFORE you do any welding!
The front crossmember of the rear suspension lines up even with the original front spring perch crossmember.
When welding the the rear brackets onto the housing DO NOT weld more that 1/4″ at a time. You must allow the welds to cool every 1/4″ before proceeding in order to prevent the housing from warping.
We made a 90° jig 25 3/8″ apart to clamp the rear brackets to keep them straight when placing them on the rear housing.
Our rear crossmember fits snugly inside the original crossmember.
Trim the floor back to the original rails.
We cut the original wheel wells even with the floor and slid them into the frame rail. After trimming the floor a strip of steel was used to finish the inner wheel wells.
