Installing Frame Connectors Ford Fox Body -EricTheCarGuy
I've started the modifications on the 1979 Ford Fairmont. Remember kids,
many of the things I do to this car also apply to Mustangs from 1979-1992. So if you're
looking for a walkthrough on installing frame connectors, this will work
for you too.
As it shows in the video my Fairmont is slightly longer than a Mustang. This created some challenges
when installing the frame connectors. I'm still thinking about how I'm
going to tackle that issue. For now the results are fantastic. The car is
more sure footed and a LOT less noisy going over bumps. In my opinion, this
is one of the best upgrades you can do to a Fox body vehicle, especially if
it's a convertible.
I did run into some issues with the brackets. Not sure what that was about.
Perhaps there was an issue with my Fairmont, or it could have been a
manufacturing issue. So far it seems to have worked out.
Lastly, I would recommend using a stripper over a grinder for cleaning the
metal. I’d also recommend a face shield as I was picking chucks of metal
out of my face for a couple of days after this. Also my safety glasses
didn’t catch everything and a couple of times I got junk in my eye.
