Hedits makes an economy kit that uses strut rods, unground welds (?) nothing fancy that should go down the road OK.

I have a Fatmans crossmember in my 53 F100, It is very strong and very driveable.
I have mine on Air Ride but you can use springs or coilovers if you prefer. I also use the tubular arms- no strut arms.

I don't know what you've heard, or who's been doing the talking, but in my opinion, you'll be hard pressed to find a better engineered kit anywhere than Heidt's. They would be my first choice in my own personal rigs, hands down.

As Old F1 mentioned, they have several different options, depending on your price point, but this is one place where you want to step up and get the good stuff, right from the get-go. A small investment here will pay dividends at resale time.
