Have a 47-54 Chevy Truck that you want to swap an S-10 Chassis underneath?
We whipped up a set of these conversion arms for a customer who is swapping a mid 90's S-10 Chassis onto a 47 Chevy body.
The arms push the wheels out to fill the fenders correctly and run an inboard shock to maximize your turning radius compared to stock arms.
They lay on 22s, with ease, and come with a steering kit to wrap it all up!

You can kind of judge the price by looking at their other prices. Those pieces are pretty heavy as they are made out of plate steel.

Longer a arms are something that the S-10 swap guys have needed all along though.

Scott: How about a longer Tube A arm with matching tie rod sleeves package for these guys?

I would seriously consider running an offset upper bag cup/mount that pushes the bag out towards the spindle another 1" or more, otherwise the pressures to lift the truck will be alot higher and the ride will be very soft due to the increased lever ratio.

The kit comes with an offset bag cup, pushes the bag out 3/4" toward the spindle.

It rides great, so far have tested in LS swap motors, SBC swapped motors, without issue. Ride quaity is much improved, with the better shock options available instead of the puny s10 shocks, something to actually work correctly with the weight of the truck up front.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but does anyone have more pics of these arms installed? I am thinking of using them on my LS swapped Jimmy to get rid of the 2" wheel adapters. I will be using them with ridetech coilovers. I've search but only found the above posted photos. Is Anyone running a 18x9.5" wheel with them?
