I am going to build 4 stands to put my T up on. These will be very similar to the set Steve Jeffs posted pictures of a short time back. Can anyone tell me how high the front and back stands need to be so that the front and rear axels hang freely. I need to do some spindle work and may pull the front springs to refinish them. I also need to pull all the spring shackles (front and rear) so I can flip them because I keep knocking the brass oilers off. I am told they might be on upside down. I need a close measurement so I can cut the steel and start fabricating the stands. Thanks....Chip
PS--My T is a 14 Depot Hack There is a picture of it on my profile.

Mine are 27.5". With the cross bar, that makes the frame 29.5" off the floor. The engine and transmission won't allow a cross bar in front, so the stands there will go under the frame. Thirty inches should be plenty.

You can also make them adjustable like the pair I had made. It is done by using two sections of pipe, a smaller pipe goes into the larger support. Holes are drilled at about 2 inch intervals into the smaller pipe. Use a pin or long bolt and the stands can go from 27.5 inch to well over 35 inches if you want.

Thank you both!....Chip
