I saw a how to article in a Lowrider Classics magazine (some very nice work,
by the way, for those who scoff at lowriders) which was basically about
installing a Chubby Chassis IFS.
They showed a very nice little arm shich bolted to the top of the frame rail
and ended in a ring which fit around the bottom of the cut-off steering
column. It was sort of like the bottom of an air cleaner which fits over
the carb neck and tightens down with a screw, except the it also had a lip
to limit forward movement of the column.
I called Chubby Chassis http://www.chubbychassis.com/ChubbyChassis.htm
to inquire about getting one of these, but they acted like they'd never
heard of it. I see from their website that they are a dealer for Ididit
steering columns now, so that may explain things. Anyway, it looked like
something one could fabricate out of 3/4 in rod, some 3/16 tube and flat
