A New Straight Axle Subframe from B's Rods

 The problem with straight axles on the street has traditionally been drivability. The new ’62-67 Chevy II/Nova Gasser Style Bolt-on subframe from B's Rods have been engineered to solve this problem. It has a front steer design to provide virtually no bump steer. Correct shackle angles and 8 degrees of positive caster will allow you to cruise the freeway with one hand on the wheel. This setup also allows you to use almost any oil pan. You don’t need the hard to find Chevy II style with the notch in the sump. Plenty of clearance for those big headers too!

The frame horns and crossmember have been built to be a perfect fit for your stock radiator core support. With 8 threaded inserts installed, it will bolt right on and make it an easy deal to install your fenders, grill, etc. You can also get optional thru-bolt sleeved bumper support mounts installed if you decide to use your stock front bumper. The urethane bushed tube style motor mounts provide the strength of solid motor mounts without the severe vibration. However, if you are drag racing and require a motor plate, B's can build one.

The basic kit includes: the frame, super slide springs with urethane bushings. Vega steering box with polished stainless steel pittman arm, FORGED spindles with pre-fitted pins, 9-1/4-inch Mustang II style vented rotors with a 5 x 4-3/4 bolt circle, GM metric calipers with pads, bearings, seals, etc. The steering arms are custom fabricated for proper geometry. The tie rod and drag link include 5/8-inch rod ends with cone spacers to eliminate any bind throughout suspension travel. The shocks are chrome PRO pieces. The hardware kit includes all grade 8 fasteners, with grade 9, 12 point bolts to attach the frame to your Nova.
