air bag over leaf spring
Ace Chassis will claim no responsibility for any problems or damage that may incur from building your own chassis.
This includes but is not limited to: home incineration, joining fingers together, loss of hair, minor or major cuts,

The information above is what has worked for the Author, but building your own chassis, or any other project for that matter, has implied risks.
There has been a lot of interest in air bags lately. If you go with our lifetime warranty spindles, this will be enough. You dont NEED suspension.
If you are using a competitors spindles, then you then you may be considering air bags, shocks, or some other type of suspension. Good idea. But why pay 3 or 4 times what it should cost for a good suspension setup? You dont need A-arms or all the contraptions that go with that because you are not cornering like a sports car.
You especially dont need the exrta lift off the line and loss of drawbar height that does occur with A-arms. You need all the room you can get between the frame rails for tanks and intercoolers. All you need is something to protect the spindles in the event of a catastophic engine failure.
We have the solution in a low cost, simple, but very effective kit you can install yourself, or we will be glad to do it for you.
What is involved? Cut your solid axle out and install 4 spring hangers. Install airbag to maintain ride height. Done. More space. No lift. No worries. Take the money saved and invest in something that will actually help get you further down the track.

Yeah. Lets build that...
The tractor that's in your head.
