Question Front bolt on suspensions

I believe I read somewhere that there are 3 people making bolt on front suspensions for the Tiger.
I saw one on The Chip Foose resto program.

I have my stock one off and am having second thoughts of modifying it.

I sure would appreciate ANY information about "bolt ons"

Default Yes 3

Fat man who said that he was too busy and Tiger's would not be enough of a market to pursue. Hokanson AKA Toyjunkie or similar spelling and Dale's Restoration in Pro Vendor section. I've driven a Hokanson and it's wonderful, however he will not respond to inquiries. I've told Dale he'd sell a lot more if someone could just drive one in a parking lot, or parallel park a equipped Tiger.

I bought a FatMan and returned it for a refund. The geometry used for all those other cars with taller tires will not work for Tigers. You end up with no ground clearance.

Hokenson is not making any more.

My new Dale's front end is shipping tomorrow. It's not cheap but supposed to be much better to drive.
