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 Rear Steer IFS kits can come with Coilovers OR Airbags.  This is NOT a Mustang II kit.  We manufacture our true Independent Front Suspension (IFS) kits with a 100% TIG Welded 1-piece crossmember built specifically for each and every application.  Designed SPECIFICALLY for 1934 and older vehicles where there is no room for a front mounted Rack & Pinion

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.
