AMT IH 4300 Kit - Fix for front axle ?

Recommended Posts

Hi all:

Has anyone done the fix for moving the front axle on the AMT IH 4300 kit so that the front wheels are centered in the front fenders?

Unfortunately, the front springs are molded with the frame rails.

Just looking to see how others have done this.

Thanks for your help.

What I would do is, glue a tiny piece of flat styrene on the leaf springs, just in front of where the axle is supposed to sit, according to the instructions. Sand and blend it into the spring. What you’d be doing is lengthening the flat part of the spring so the axle can be moved forward.
