Hi Kaleb. Try R&D Unique. (Possibly on Detail Master website). It's a dropped tube front suspension, part no. RDU2451. It was $7.00. It may not be R & D Unique anymore, but "Mini Exotics@AOL.com". Hope this helps. fiatboy

R&D Unique, who also owned the MiniExotics line, closed up a little over a year ago. Now, the Revell '37 Ford kits have a dropped tubular (CAE?) front axle in them.

Could you use aluminum tubing bent to shape? Maybe solder but that might be too soft. Maybe some Evergreen rod? How about using a coat hanger?
