Fatman Fabrications manufactures the best 1949 –1951 Lincoln Dropped Uprights for taking your factory front suspension to the next level. These cars have a decent original IFS with good geometry and parts availability.
The primary drivability issue with these Lincoln vintage suspensions is that they were designed to be aligned with negative caster for easier steering effort, but that causes a lack of high speed steering stability. When power steering is used on modern cars along with modern radial tires and highway speeds, positive caster around 2-3 degrees is typically used.
These 1949 – 1951 Lincoln original suspensions do not have the adjustment range for that much positive caster, often all you can get is 0-1 degree positive so the high speed feel is loose. If you drive long distances at Interstate speeds you may find that our complete new IFS systems are a better choice. If you drive locally at speeds more in the 1950 range (45-55 MPH) you may well be happy retaining the original IFS and lowering it with these 2 ½” Lincoln Dropped Uprights.
The Fatman Lincoln Dropped Uprights come standard with a new kingpin set, with the bushings installed and reamed, and ready for installation on your suspension.
Our 1949 – 1951 Lincoln Dropped Uprights include:
2 1/2” Dropped Uprights
A new kingpin set is included
Bushings installed and reamed
Ready for installation on your Lincoln suspension

Please Note: The stock Lincoln steering arms must be replaced with our matching dropped steering arms per our instructions to put the outer tie rod end back in it’s original location relative to the suspension in order to prevent bumpsteer.
