This was a project that I put off. Every time I drove my 57 it was a death defying feat. Every time I looked at what I needed to do to correct the problem, replace the entire linkage, lower control arms and upper ball joints, I put it off.
Well...it's done. What a difference. She handles like its right off the show room floor. I can only post one pic at a time so...

The entire linkage and suspension was original which is incredible. The shocks were also original. Also added, a rear sway bar... It's a tight ride even though the power steering feels a bit slack. Still 100% better.

Yea...didn't add the front sway bar yet. I wanted to see the difference just updating everything would have. Also installed new tie rod ends, pitman arm. All needs to be adjusted now. She pulls to the right. Other than that shes solid at highway speeds. Going to bring her to my Mechanic, get all aligned. After driving awhile, I'll add the front sway bar, see if there's a noticeable difference.

You will see a huge difference and wonder why you didn`t add it sooner.

Trust me you won`r regret adding it. Go take it for a quick run through a couple of curves. Then add it and go back through the same curves. I have both the front and rear sway bars, and it is a blast to drive on a curvy road now.
