    Scrub radius I understand. Again, Phil Harris would be able to answer your question.

    David.....I can't answer your question, but I'm sure Phil Harris at Fairborn Studebaker can. I confess that I do not understand the question..........."tire patch",........can you expand on tire patch.

    Jack, before I posted information and photos of these lowered Kingpins, I spoke with Phil. They are still available, as to the price, Phil can answer that question.

    Has anyone asked Phil Harris if the dropped spindles are still available and if so, how much?

    Len, I am using QA1 rebuild-able, low friction ball joints. At the present state they are 13", center to center of the joint for an instant center of 120". QA1 has replaceable ball and studs up to 1.5" longer for a total of 16" if needed.

    These are the pictures sent to me from John (JLB) of his 2" dropped setup. Note the other mods and the brake setup. Nice work, John.

    Whats the distance between balljoints? Did you find the 1995-2002 too tall, or some other reason not to use them?

    This is the way I am doing mine. Forged Camaro 2" drop spindles. Chrysler ball joints. Most all pieces are out of the Circle Track catalog.

    Putting the body back down on the frame in front will give you about 1 3/4" drop in front. You will need Studebaker style front fender openings so the tires do not contact fender lips. Lower yet you can use an AFCO coil with adjustable upper spring seats. That is what is in the Ron Hall Avanti. I was able to drop the spindle only 1/2". That is about as far as you can go. Ron's car is so low you cannot get a standard floor jack under it in front.
