P-47 63-87 Fullsize Chevy Raised Crossmember Kit

Out of stock

The P-47 Crossmember kit is a direct bolt in replacement that was designed to fit 63-87 Chevy Trucks. Not only does it look badass, it narrows your track width a total of 2.25 inches and raises your front suspension 3 inches. This means there is no more reason to “Z” the frame rails in order to lay out flat. Besides, doing a “Z” is extremely involved, very time consuming and unsafe if not performed properly. Not to mention all of the modifications that have to be made when performing a “Z”.

When upgrading your front suspension by using our crossmember, you will ditch all the factory steering components and upgrade to a more responsive and attractive 79-93 Mustang Rack and Pinion. Both manual and power racks can be used. Installing a weld in steering linkage clearance notch is necessary. (This notch is included with this kit). Also, included with this kit are Stainless Steel tie rod connectors and Heavy Duty Teflon Chromoly Heim Joints with Stainless Steel misalignment spacers. These will attach your Rack and Pinion to the spindle.

This kit includes the following:
*Raised Main Crossmember Kit
*Engine Mounts
*Inner Frame Structuring Gussets
*Upper Bag/Control Arm Mounts
*Tie Rod Frame Notches
*Upper Shock Frame Mounts
*Monroe Sensatrac Shocks
*Stainless Tie Rod Connectors with Hardware
*Transmission Crossmember
*All Grade 8 Mounting Hardware
*Powdercoating Option (add $150.00)

*Spindles are not included.

Q: Will factory 63-87 control arms work with this kit?
A: Yes they will. Although some arms will need to be modified for clearance. Tubular arms are recommended.

Q: Will a factory swaybar work with this crossmember?
A: No. Since this crossmember narrows your track width by 2.25", the factory swaybar is too wide and will interfere with your steering.

Q: How big of a wheel/tire will this kit lay out on?
A: This kit will lay a 29.5” tall tire which is roughly a 22” wheel with a tire size of 265/35/22 or a 235/40/22 when using 3” drop spindles.

Q: How much overall lift does this kit provide?
A: Approximately 8” of total lift.

Q: Does this kit move the front suspension forward so that the wheel is centered in the wheel wells?
A: Yes it does.

Q: What engines will this kit work with?
A: We offer engine mounts for the Small Block Chevy, Big Block Chevy, and the Generation 3 Chevy Engines. Any other engine can be used but you will have to build the engine mounts.

Q: How long is this kit under warranty?
A: All of the Thorbecke Brothers manufactured steel products have a life time warranty.
