    M3 ifs irs in a pick up .... madness?

    So I have built and sold a 57chevy That I fitted with jag ifs and IRS


    The new project is a studebaker pickup, which I plan on building a scratch chassis, and fitting IRS and IFS to

    Both donor axles need to be from the same car as I will iva, and want an age related plate.


    So I can use jag (relatively easy), or I can go more modern and fit something readily available with lots of tuning upgrades, like a M3 setup

    The stude is relatively light compared to a Chevy, and close to the weight of an m3.


    Has anyone done something like this?

    Is my desire to make a great handling truck using m3 type suspension madnes?

    This morning i put a 53 suburban chassis in my table.waiting to go in,is the full running gear including front and rear axles of a newish s type jag.


    Nothing mad about any project.just put in what youre happy with. The chevy and the jag are not far out weight wise,though its a bit of a guessing game as to what ride height will be.to overcome that as im using the jag shocks,was to desighn the top mounts for them,so they can be adjusted in the future

    Well I'm committed.

    Just bought a rolling m3 for front and rear axles, steering rack, column etc...

    Sounds mad, but the M3 at 1460kg is heavier than the studebaker at 1260kg!

    Appreciate I won't be heavy loading it without some helper springs in the rear, but with so many aftermarket options for shocks and springs, decent brakes, a good strong lsd I think it's a good place to start.
