Hey, I am a new member. I need input on installing a 6" wider front beam. I do not want to put the car down for long, so I need all of the parts and information before I have to "figure it out". I want to purchase a "warrior" beam. 8" or 10" for moderate desert off road? I will run a "stock gearbox" for ease of installment. I know I can get extended tie rod kits for the beam. Any tips on front brake hoses? Any proven shock set-up? Anyone have to cut alot of sheet metal for the shocks to "pop-up" or will the increased width of the beam keep me out of trouble? Can I run 7.00x15 fronts without "hang up" on locked turns under full compression? I have a really cool "bug eye" kit and do not want to ruin the overall "retro" appearance of my '64. Will the wide front look silly with the short rear swing axle suspension(torsions bars have been preloaded). Also, what front supports will I need for moderate off-road strenght WITHOUT removing the stock tank? Sorry about the novel, but my aim is to keep our sport alive and I will pass on all information to my fellow "border" desert runners.
