The Fat Fender Garage 53-56 Ford F100 rear dropmember gives you all the quality you expect from a PorterBuilt chassis, in a budget friendly kit. We designed these kits to provide the home builder the ease of a bolt-in kit, without sacrificing ride quality. This will take your farm truck to an entirely new level that allows you to autocross your truck on Ridetech’s proven coilover technology, or cruise slow ‘n low on an adjustable airbag setup.

Great Starting Point: Our base price includes the dropmember, frame rails, crossmembers, 4-link control arms, bed mounts, suspension bridge, shock relocation brackets, watts link and hardware. Other companies charge extras for these basic parts, but we include them in our base option.

Suspension: The airbag suspension includes Dominator airbags, shocks and mounting hardware. This option will give you the ability to cruise at a safe & comfortable ride height when you are on the road. When it’s time to pull into a car show or your local meet up, you can drop your truck on the running boards for that low-low look.

The coilover suspension includes Ridetech’s HQ coilovers and all mounting hardware. HQ Series coil-overs feature 24-position rebound adjustment to to help you fine tune the shocks to your driving preferences and vehicle demands.

Rear Axle: Rear Differential Housing: Currie 9″ Centurion Housing/Torino Ends, notched style cover, 60″ standard width. Includes Ford 9″ third member, with 31 spline axles, TrueTrac, and 3.50 gears.  *All applicable brackets for your airbag setup, or coilover setup, will be welded to the housing for your convenience.

Slow it down: Your brake options include 12-14″ rotors and the more horsepower you run, the bigger your brakes should be. If you are going to autocross your truck, then bigger is definitely better. The larger diameter rotor is better at dissipating the extreme heat experienced in racing. See the Wilwood Wheel Clearance Chart to confirm fitment with your wheel choice.

13″ kit includes 13″ Wilwood rotors, and Wilwood calipers (17″ wheels or larger)
