As the prices of Tri-Five Chevys have continued to climb, we're seeing more and more people turning to the more affordable (and just as cool, in our opinion) '49-54 Chevys. Several manufactures have taken notice of these up-and-coming projects and started supplying more parts to help improve the factory's design. One area that needs attention in just about any car manufactured more than 50 years ago is the suspension.

Walton Fabrication is now offering a kit to replace the stock parallel leaf springs with a four-link system that can be easily installed by someone who knows how to use a tape measure and has a little welding skill. Two of the main brackets mount using existing holes, and then the rear crossmember is set using a measurement from there so the guesswork has been eliminated.

We happened to catch the Walton crew as they were getting ready to install one on a '49 Chevy when we were out visiting some shops one day. They had already removed the old spring brackets and installed the new brackets on the rearend. The rest of the install went pretty quickly after that.
