When I arrived at the shop, the guys had already given the old heave-ho to the stock rear and leaf springs. They were preparing the Heidt's kit components for installation. Aside from being specifically designed for the Chevy II, rather than one of those universal kits some companies offer, the Heidt's package is available with the option of a 9-inch housing, a complete rearend assembly, or everything except the rearend--the standard usually includes a pair of subframe connectors, four-bar and bracket assemblies, rear coilover crossmember, coilover shocks, Panhard bar, and all mounting hardware. Also available is a cool trans mount, which bridges the forward portions of the subframe connectors and accepts most GM transmissions.
