Q: I need to cut my frame horns off
for my 47-55.1 Chevy Short bed, Long Bed, or Suburban/Panel truck S-10
conversion kit. How do I cut these so my brackets will fit properly?
When we cut the front frame horns for the 47-55.1 Chevy Short bed, Long Bed, or
Suburban Panel truck S-10 conversion kits, we cut them in a “step” pattern.
This means that we actually follow the contours of the driver and passenger
side front frame horn brackets (part #’s 50410079C and 50410078C). Starting on
the sides, we make a mark following the curve. On the top of the frame, we draw
a straight line across, then for the front, we make a straight mark down that
is flush with the tab that points away from the frame. It is easiest to start
with the driver’s side as you can mock up the bracket with your power steering
gear box bolts.
