Good luck to you, What is your plan for the suspension? Do you need info on where to buy the required parts to rebuild the front suspension? What part of Kuwait are you in?

wow, shipping costs will be expensive! I bought ALL of my suspension parts from Home - Classic Haulers F-1 Parts . Great people, great prices, and great customer service! They have everything you will need, from stock to lowered and in between. Do you have any pics of your truck?

Hey Daro,
Welcome Aboard! Nice looking truck. What sort of suspension do you
have in it currently? Stock?

We upgraded our front end with a Mustang II style Independent front suspension. There are lot's of options for you. Can you tell us the problems you are having with the current set up?

Hey Daro,
If you search on this site for Mustang II style suspension you will find numerous discussions. Another option is the Jaguar front end if you have salvage yards available there in Kuwait.

Our front suspension is from a company called No Limit Engineering another common brand is Heidt's .

Good luck over there.

If you can post some pics of the front suspension and steering you currently have, someone will probably recognize it and be able to help out.

I have the stock suspension with a disc brake conversion, and a Toyota power steering box in mine, for example.

Here is a link on how to post pics.

I just use photobucket. It is simple to upload the pics to them, then just copy the link and post it to your post/thread. Instant pics.

Yes the easiest way is to upload your photos is to load them on photobucket.com then use the link they give you to post them here. What I understand so far is, that your truck does not have the stock suspension on it. Do you want to go back to the original stock suspension? Do you currently have a solid front axle?

Hey Daro,
The absolute easiest way to post pics on here is to pay the $20 to join.
Being a member virtually eliminates the annoying ads & it allows you to post pics directly from your hard drive - much easier. (Not pushing membership - its just the easiest way to post pics & eliminate the ads).

Good luck over there.
