Several kits have gone out, Kit's are built and shipped in the order I've been contacted at dairylandfab@tds.net and I'm still catching up on that list, unfortunately it's not going nearly as quickly as I'd like.
One of my first customers was at the AutoX with me a few weeks back with the '65 American, he was enjoying it very much ;)

Working to increase my output capability currently. Each kit is hand fit and assembled in my shop, finish welding is done using local talent, however my small jobs often get pushed back on the priority list. That's understandable, but still frustrating.

Rogue401 - Thanks, I like my understated look on this car. Also, the suspension has 9-inches of travel. Obviously the lower the car is, the less up-travel that's available.

Finally got the time to install this kit. Will be taking trunnions and springs off tomorrow. Looking forward to improved handling. Great looking kit!

This would be awesome if it fit my 1966 Rambler Classic. Has anyone been able to see if it fits the big bodies? I would very likely be in the market, if it does.
Thanks.

I plan on documenting my install when I get my kit and look forward to the results of it. I may weld mine in though depending on how I could tie into some front down bars. Once its paired up with the 3 link rear set up, it should handle pretty well.

343sharpstick, any updates on how business is going with the suspension setups? Anymore customer feedback? When I'm able to afford it, I sure hope you're still doing these. I'd love to have your setup on the front of my car one day. Then I have to decide on either a link setup for the rear or stick to straight line with Caltracs split mono leafs and bars. Of course a daily driver that is fun at the autocross and will also run low 12s down the 1/4 mile would be super duper.

I received my kit early this month, but I was on the waiting list for approximately 5 months.

I believe the kits are still being made, just be prepared to wait before a kit is ready to buy.

I'm still behind, but getting kits out.
I'm currently in the process of building a better fixture to punch out upper control arms quicker. When that's done It will speed things up.

I've had to travel for work a fair amount as well, which doesn't help, interesting I'm typing this while at a hotel in Shanghai.

Hello,I'm Pete I own a 64 Rambler American 220 wagon. I'm very interested in getting rid of my trunnions too!. I have spent the last year looking for a affordable front suspension That I can replace 
the factory trunnions with. I came across your AMCform post last night by accident while, I was once again looking for a replacement front suspension. Or maybe it was fate I found you. At any rate, will this front suspension your selling fit in my wagon (please please please) Its rough out there finding parts for a 54 y/o wagon. I did notice in the picture you provided of the drivers side of your green javelin, the shock tower is the same as my Rambler.  Is there some way I can contact you I would greatly appreciate hearing back from you.
Thank you for your time, Pete
