Independent Front Suspensions ~ IFS ~ Lakes Hot Rod Parts by Kustom Bitz


Hot Rod IFS font ends by Kustom Bitz

Kustom Bitz manufactures these high quality and strong IFS cross members with solid one piece stainless steel suspension arms that have no welding on them what so ever, so there are no welds to fatigue and potentially fail on the most highly stressed component in the front end. Only the best quality steel is used to manufacture our front ends and don't let any one else tell you otherwise. Kustom Bitz follows best engineering practice at all times and we don't compromise on parts. Building to a price just to get sales is NOT what we are about.


Our one piece A arms, front wishbones are investment cast 304 stainless steel, formed completely in one piece. These are the strongest street legal aftermarket IFS your money can buy and is far superior to tubular fabricated A arms. Our stub axles are one piece, we think the use of a bolt in tapered shaft for the hubs to spin on, [like our competition uses to keep costs down] is not best engineering practice. Automotive engineers should be much more comfortable giving engineering approval to your ride when you install a complete Kustom Bitz front end.

All our standard IFS and our custom IFS units are tig welded in a clever welding jig developed by Kustom Bitz to deliver accurate repeat-ability and accurately locate the components to a tolerance of + or - 1mm.


The geometry of our Kustom Bitz hot rod front ends has been developed over 20+ years of trial and error. It is based on unequal length A arms like many OEM front ends so it lends itself to a wide variety of street applications. The cross member is shaped as such to allow it to fit in early body styles with out modifying the mud guards and we can also fit it to many later body styles too.
