Re: [T3] IRS conversion


<x-flowed>Hi all,
I did my 63 notch the way Neil is talking about. I used a swing axle torsion assembly (frame horns) and welded on the IRS control arm brackets like IRS torsion assemblies have. Then I switched over the torsion plates from swing axle to the shorter IRS that attach to the control arms.


I did not weld in any rear crossmember mounts. I figured that since the notch never had them before, the original mounting would be sufficient. After all they were added when the cars went to IRS and lost the frame horns, right?

I'll post some pictures later.

hi
of course the best would be early frame horns with irs diagonal arms the diagonal arm brackets to do this conversion can be brought from somewhere on the net you then weld these onto the original swing axle sub frame assembly . you will need to weld in your engine compartment the brackets for the rear engine hanger x-member as well .
