I have recently drug my old Commando out of the pasture and plan on getting it back into shape. It is a 1968 with the 225/400 automatic. I have had this for about 19 years, so I suppose it's about time! In searching for parts, I came across a 1972 "bullnose" with the 304/auto in it, and snapped it up on ebay. It will come home next weekend. I have looked through many of the previous threads on this site, but was hoping some of you could verify a few things for me. From what I read, the 72 should have Saginaw power steering, which I would like to put in place of the manual setup I have now. Will the longer wheelbase of the 72 present a problem in swapping into my 68? Also, if I add in a few leaves to the 72 rear springs (not sure from what, yet- most likely a car) can I get a small lift that I can live with, or will it get too stiff in a hurry? I was thinking about two extra leaves, and maybe making some boxed extended shackles about 1 1/2" longer than stock. I don't want to go crazy with height, but i have visions of running 31x13.50 super swamper sx's on 10" rims. I want it to look agressive, and not to have rubbing issues. Naturally, I plan on putting the heavier axles from the 72 in as well. Lastly, has anyone grafted the front wheel well flares from a set of bullnose fenders onto the tub of a Commando? They seem to follow the same basic shape of the rears, and have a larger opening. I have lots of reconstruction to do on the tub anyways, and thought this might be a neat way to gain some tire clearance. Thanks in advance for any help and advice!
