I wana put shocks up front of my '59 too, but I read that you lose some steering radius (i guess because the steering knuckle hits the shock) anyone know if thats true?

dont flick me any crap about the bag its just temporary im going to run 2600's  :biggrin:
the shock will go behind all that, you only lose it when you have large rims. The wheel rim starts to rub against the shock at full radius (if you can get there). For me, I use nissan hardbody shocks.
