Having trouble finding drag links and spindles for a 1970 C40 Thomas School Bus. Gasser was replaced by a 5.9 Cummins, little more weight up front than original specs. Considering custom fab or giving up at this point. Anyone have any leads on rare mid duty truck/bus chassis parts or custom fabricators in the PNW?

I think you will find suspension parts from the c-50 and c-60 will work. The c40 not that common as a stand alone truck. Use chevy truck forums to help on your search. I hope this is of help to you.
