Mike Brattland's 1938 Willys Pickup Build Pictures / wb50


I selected a  Deuce Factory 4 Link kit for my willys. I picked it as the brackets were half brackets allowing me to install them without having to cut the ends off the housing as most 4 link brackets are installed.  The kit was very beefy and has provided the kind of rear suspension needed to handle the motor, trans and tire combination on this pickup. In the picture, I had installed the new shortened axles and was determining the center of the housing so that I could then locate the 4 link brackets evenly before welding them. When I did weld them, I was very careful to weld small sections at a time, moving from one side to the other, to ensure I did not warp the rear housing.
