I need some advice im wanting to put my 1962 chevy short box body on a different frame and I was told two things. It will fit on a 73 to 87 frame or a 67 to a 72 frame which is true and easier to do?

i dont' have time to search it out this afternoon as i am just running out..

but there is the possibility to bolt on a 73 up front suspension to your frame to get the newer suspension with disc brakes..

i think there was an article on this either here or over in custom classic trucks.. there were until last week.. about a dozen truck web sites.. some of the 4x4 sites have been mashed and manged into a single site..  but the other truck sites remain. for the time being..

if you decide to swap frames..   be sure to take a bunch of measurements with plumb bobs and yard sticks..  so you can calculate where the frame stuff needs to be moved around to slightly..

i am taking the short bed has leaf springs.. not the coil spring long trailing arm suspension..
