Why is Scott’s Hotrods Different?  

Our Independent Front Suspension is NOT a Mustang II.  We do not use a 3-piece style crossmember with spring pocket hats. We do not use T-Bolt slider adjusters that CAN come lose.  We only use Coilovers or Airbags w/ external shock.  Our Suspension can be dialed in precisely and can never be knocked out of alignment.  We 100% TIG Weld our kits.  We only use 5/8″ Grade 8 Hardware..

Scott’s Hotrods Tri-5 IFS front clip is the only full front end clip with full adjustable upper A-arms on the market today for 1955, 1956 and 1957 Chevy’s. It simply replaces your stock frame from the firewall forward. It comes with all factory bumper holes and core support, so your stock sheet metal will bolt back in place.

Scott’s Tri-5 IFS clip can come with either Coilovers or Airbags w/external shock. Like all Scott’s Hotrods IFS front clips, each Tri-5 IFS front clip will be built to spec, individually for each customer. 100% MADE IN USA.

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 Independent Front Suspension (IFS)

Scott’s Hotrods believes in Quality, Creativity, Engineering & Workmanship.  These qualities go into all of its suspension kits.  Scott’s does not settle for inferior materials or products and neither should you when it comes to the suspension on your custom hot rod.  No matter how pretty your paint sparkles, how plush your seats feel or how much power you say you have under the hood, if your vehicle handles and rides poorly, nothing else matters.

Scott’s Hotrods manufactures the BEST Independent Front Suspension (IFS) for ANY Year, Make & Model vehicle from 1925 to 1987.  No other suspension manufacturer comes close.  Scott’s IFS kits have never been and will never be Mustang II Kits.  Scott’s True IFS kits are not universal and are designed for each and every vehicle application.  Although many kits appear very similar, all the dimensions and geometry are engineered to work for specific applications.

All of the IFS kits are built from scratch materials in Knoxville, Tennessee.  Metal is sourced from trusted, quality sources and delivered weekly.  Scott’s in-house CNC Mills and Lathes cut many of the components used on each and every kit including the Cross Tubes, Ball Joint Cups, Rack & Shock Bungs, Stainless Steel Adjustable Upper A-Arm Rod Ends and A-Arm Tubes.  The in-house HD Plasma table cuts all of the tabs.  Every IFS kit is 100% TIG Welded and Quality Checked before it is packed up and shipped out to the customer.

Scott’s stands behind ALL of the parts it manufactures. Other parts that Scott’s does not manufacture such as brakes, steering racks, ball joints, brake flex lines, power steering lines, bearings, seals, etc carry their own manufacturers warranties. Scott’s is not responsible for these items outside of their original warranty.
