Identify front clip added to 1939 Chevy Coupe
Ok, let me try this again. Apparently photos get cropped when I upload them so they are small. But I'll try again.
I am trying to identify my front suspension, so I can rebuild, add disc brakes, etc. It is definietely a GM suspension. The upper and lower control arms are both large, not skinny on the lower ones, like some cars. It has 3 rivit upper ball joints, I see alot of Chevys have 4 rivets ( or 4 bolts ) on the upper ball joint. The cross shaft on the upper control arm is curved, and has a number on it, it says: 3821133 GM 102
It has a manual steering box, but also has a hydraulic clinder attached onto the center link.
I will download pics, but they may be small again. I can email larger photos.
Thanks for any help/

After many e-mails (and measurements) exchanged w/Tony, I believe it is a 58-64 Chev passenger front suspension.
