Front Suspension & Chassis Upgrades - '68 Cougar / Mustang
In this video, we show some of the ways you can easily stiffen your car's
chassis and upgrade your front suspension. Using Andrew's '68 Cougar as a
guinea pig, we bolt on, and weld on, some simple parts that will make a big
difference in reducing the torsional flex that these front ends are prone
to, as well as improving the integrity of the shock towers.

In this video, Don does a detailed inspection on a 1967 Mercury Cougar XR-7
to show some of the things you should look for when buying one of these
classic cars. Some of the insight here can potentially save you hundreds,
even thousands, when you go to negotiate with a seller. Also, it will help
those of you trying to sell, to more accurately advertise the strengths and
weaknesses of your car.
We've also done a similar video with a 1970 Cougar convertible, so you may

The V8 Interceptor [S4 Ep.11-1]
One of the most popular cars of the Muscle car era... the Mercury Cougar...
has been one of the most overlooked cars in recent decades. Today on GEARZ
all of that changes as Stacey rolls in a solid '67 Cougar... dubs it the
"V8 Interceptor"... and begins to completely change the front suspension to
get rid of the stock shock towers and turn this little old lady's car into
a corner-carving, road-gripping beast. But wait!... you can't cut out the
shock towers can you!?! Yes you can!... and Stacey goes in-depth on not
only how to do it, but also the installation of a complete TCI independent
front suspension. If you own or want to own a classic Mustang, Cougar, Fairlane, or other
60's Ford, and have always wished you could get rid of those stock shock
towers to get more room in the engine compartment, this is the show for

RIDETECH level 2 coil over + 4 link install (71 Chevy Camaro)
Ridetech level 2 coil over + 4 link install on 71 Camaro. This is our 2nd
RIDETECH suspension upgrade completed, with this group of friends; our
first on a "F" body! For the "F" body, we had to break out the welder!
The older American Thunder series flowmaster transverse muffler/exhaus had
to be removed to clear the upper link brackets. Andy, Don, Mike, Ray, Jim
and Terry, thank you so much for your help on this. Replaced the
Flowmaster "american thunder series" tranverse muffler with two 3 chamber
50 series flowmasters. Ran the 2.5 inch runs under the differential. The
pipes allow for wider tires down the road. Car has more Pep! The guys at
Guaranteed Mufflers and Brakes in Fremont, were great! Really happy with
the new deep sound.
Next step: Finalize the ride height!
