'61 F-100 Steering Box Relocation [Vogt Family ]
Rear Suspension help [Brian Foster ]

Subject: '61 F-100 Steering Box Relocation

Hi all, I have a '61 F-100 4x4 which you may have answered questions on
already. Since I want to put a big block in it, I would like to box up
the frame, and the steering box is located inside the frame channel.
Obviously I need to move it, and probably replace it with a Saginaw
power box, but am I going to be able to keep the stock column in it, or
am I going to have to change to the less steeply angled type that goes
through the firewall instead of the floor, like my '66? The column it
has now seems to run all the way into the box (no exposed shaft).
However, I like to keep things as original appearing as possible.

Subject: Rear Suspension help

I have a 1976 F250 (just short of being a Camper
Special) and I mounted a 10 1/2-foot cabover
camper on it. I have installed the Air Lift
bags, but I still feel the suspension is a
little unnerving. Any recommendations of what
others have done with their cabover solutions?

I'd like to keep the costs down, but safety is
my primary concern.

E-mail direct to roundel please.
