Why is Scott’s Hotrods Different?  

At Scott’s Hotrods we believe, wholeheartedly, that the key to enjoying a hotrod lies in the suspension underneath it and in making the decision to never settle for anything less than perfection.

Scott’s Hotrods 63-87 GMC/Chevy C-10 Bolt-On Standard IFS with Mustang II Spindle: An extremely popular truck, the 1948-1953 Chevy/GMC has always been a top seller of our weld-in IFS systems.  Fortunately, the Chevy/GMC’s frame has led to an easy transition for a bolt-on IFS. This is our traditional unit designed just as we have been doing for over 20 years.  Tested and proven both on the track and on the street, this front end design allows the use of any traditional 11″ Granada brake rotors, on up to 14” Wilwood brakes. Like all Scott’s Hotrods IFS systems, each unit will be built to spec, individually for each customer using 100% USA made materials, engineering and craftsmanship.  This allows us to “fine-tune” the suspension.

For those looking to have a tight handling coil over suspension, we can set it up to be fully tunable and adjustable to get that track handling on the weekends, and a comfortable ride for everyday use.

Scott’s Hotrods 1963-87 Chevy/GMC Truck with C-10 Spindle: Now available for the 63-87 C-10 IFS is the option for a C-10 spindle and brake package. For those wanting this configuration, our IFS can be built using 73-87 Ball-joints and a 73-87 C-10 spindle or CPP modular spindle. Modeled after our standard 63-87 bolt in IFS, this option allows you to finally run a full size C-10 spindle. These are available complete; with or without brakes and spindles.

Although most of the items are specific to our IFS need to be bought from us directly, if you already have 73-87 spindles/ball-joints/brakes, you can use them. Like all Scott’s Hotrods IFS systems, each unit will be built to spec, individually for each customer. This allows us to “fine-tune” the suspension. For those looking to have a tight handling coilover suspension we can set it up to be fully tunable and adjustable to get that track handling on the weekends, and a comfortable ride for everyday use. Typically, we will build this unit with 7 degrees of caster to start, but if laying low is your style, we can set you up to run up to a 31” tall tire and still have a low frame, while maintaining superior drivability over our competitors.

A Scott’s Hotrods 63-87 bolt-on SuperSlam IFS gets nearly 10” of total travel! If you are looking for minimum camber change throughout your total travel however, we recommend the Mustang-based spindle version. A unique problem that is faced with this IFS system is the inherently weak and “twisty” stock frame. This problem is addressed with a one-piece crossmember that is stronger and more rigid than our competitors. Our unique frame cradles also address this issue by creating a “box” style frame section where the crossmember bolts in place.

The cradle also provides the mounting surface for your choice of motor mounts that will be welded in place, assuring that your installation is 100% bolt in. Everything has been thought out, even unique features like a spherical Heim end with a right/left hand threaded junction for easy toe alignment. There is no other 100% bolt in suspension or dropped crossmember for these trucks. Scott’s Hotrods is the only true bolt-on that allows for installation and driving in a weekend. As always, these units are 100% TIG welded (not MIG welded) and come with Scott’s Hotrods famous lifetime guarantee.
