Gibbon Cordoba Crossmember

I currently have a 1954 F100 and would like to install Cordoba front suspension using a Gibbons crossmember. I can't find their website or anyway to contact them. I have previously installed one of these crossmembers in a 1956 F100 and everything about the installation was straight forward and easy to perform. Also the ride and handling were great plus the adjustable height and side to side adjustment capabilities are really nice. If anyone knows how I can get one of these crossmembers please let me know, Thanks

Those crossmember kits were made by Dwight Bond in Nebraska. He retired a couple years ago and those crossmembers are no longer available new. I have seen a couple used or uninstalled units for sale from time to time, though.

Allot of options out there that are more serviceable - available . Any coilover system will give you the adjustments your looking for and as John mentioned parts availability , plus if I remember correctly it has a huge steering box to navigate . P. S. the cordoba parts are closer to the age of truck than to the current date .

Volare and Cordoba are not the same...Volare has "L"-shaped torsion bars forward of crossmember and Cordoba has straight torsion bars that run inboard of the frame to the rear of the crossmember. I wouldn't use either given the choice, too many other/better options out there today.
