Yep, Sids axle on the front. Issue is now with camber/caster....can these be shimmed or does the axle need to be heated and set?

Thank you so much. Talked to Sid and he advised to set toe in and that should solve problem.

Thanks again for contact info

So, Sid now makes these brackets to work with reversed eye to lower rear! As you can see there are 3 bolt holes for adjustment too. He recommended middle hole with 4 leafs.

Your truck looks absolutely fantastic. I hope to get mine there some day. Iím just curious, what size drop axle did you use in the front? Also wondering, with the new brackets installed, did you still have to do the axel flip in the rear? You definitely have one great truck.

Thank you very much JaySam! 3" drop axle in front. With new brackets, there is no axle flip-you reverse the front leaf spring eye. Between the two, thats how you get your drop.

Looking good. I like my trucks lower for a nice stance but still high enough that you can crawl under without jacking it up. Yours is that perfect height, how high is the bottom of the cab to the floor(from the rocker)?

Mate, is that steering wheel the correct one for a 1960 F100.
Some photos on the net show a wheel with horn ring, not horn button
I am looking for the original and do not want to buy the wrong one.

Dman, I'm about 10 1/2". I can slide under it.

Surmin-as far as I know it is correct. I think the custom cab had a different steering wheel design? Maybe someone else with more knowledge can chime in to help you...
