Nice looking truck. I have contacted Sid's in the hopes I can get an axle for my new project.

Hot rod Kev

Thank you for the pictures this morning of your disk brake setup and the insight on the parts. I am fabricating the 360 & A727 mounts in the panel now and getting the parts for attempting the disks next.
I must say you have done a very fine job on your Vintage Dodge. I hope I can get mine half as nice.

Thanks again, Steve

And Rocky this is what its all about... I had to learn the hard way on almost everything I did... there isnt much information out there on these old Dodge trucks but now parts are becomming somewhat available etc it just takes time and there are alot of people not wanting to share their stuff but Im open to helping everyone I can honestly.. If ya need anything else let me know and cant wait to see some pics of your pannel...

Hello HotrodKev I was woundering if you could help me, I have a 1957 dodge d100 that looks very similair to your 56 (other than the front sheet metal), I was interested in sids drop axles and saw your 56 had done this. i was recently t-boned in my 57 and my wheel took all the impact, and it bent my axle a little bit. i went with a volare ifs swap, until i saw i had to cut my frame, so i hit a dead end there.
My question is i think we have the same axles on 56 and 57 i was woundering how your experience with the drop axle has been? cost? if you dont mind me asking. I see your in TX and sids is Oklahoma, I was woundering did you ship yours there or just order one? I am in AZ. thanks for any info. your truck is awesome. I wish we lived closer together i would love to see it in person. heres my truck if your interested > http://www.cardomain.com/ride/321039...-pickup/page-2
