Model A 19" wheels? How much lowering do you get in the rear with the kinked spring ends?

Cool, Chevy had 6 bolts like wood T hubs, but I guess you still had to make adapters?

The fronts just use the Chevy hubs, which fit right onto a T spindle.

Yes, I bent the axle. The head is the Fronty with two intake ports.
