Default Running dual exhaust over Drake's shock anti sway kit?

Howdy all
we are thinking of installing Drake's rear shock & anti-sway kit
for original rear ends on our 39 Ford deluxe tudoor.

Has anyone installed this kit on there 39 and had any problems running dual exhaust out the back? And were there any problems installing this kit? it's supposedly bolt on no welding.

thanks Thanks to all who reply
Mike

I have yet to see a dual exhaust system that is an "unpack and bolt on" set. At our shop, we stopped installing exhaust systems years ago. Instead, we send the vehicles to a very good local shop that makes up all pipes on site. That provides adequate clearance all around, even when the pipes expand when hot. No rattles, squeaks, or leaks make for happy customers.

I installed the Drake rear sway kit on my '40 coupe, the best single thing ever made for a '40 Ford.
It's a bolt on with a fair amount of labor.
You will need a hub puller & then rework the tail pipes. Not a big deal, local muffler shop reworked mine in short order.

I have one of these kits that I decided not to use. Still in the box. If interested send me a message.

I have a 36, will the kit work on mine and what's the advantage?

Will the 4148r work with transverse spring and banjo rear?

I have not read the blurb lately, but I believe Drake's kit is for '37 to '40 Fords with a transverse spring.
The kit will reduce body roll about 90%. Works well without a front bar, especially the oversized & hard riding Chassis Engineering front kit.
I know the last statement will open some discussion, but I tested with & without the C.E. kit.

I installed that kit on my 39 pick-up, you can find my thread and pics on the "search" section. I thought the directions for the kit were very good and in my application it went very well.

Good luck, free shipping till the end of the year
