Mustang Front Suspension Installation Forgotten Fastback 1965
In this installation video, Bill demonstrates how to upgrade a front
suspension in CJ's 1965 Forgotten Fastback project car. Before the upgrade,
the Forgotten Fastback's suspension was beyond poor, with two 4x4s for
springs and several loose parts.
In order to make the Fastback a Mustang with modern updates, we've
decided to install a stock-style suspension with a few performance
upgrades, which will provide a better handling experience. For springs,
upper and lower control arms, and a strut rod kit, we've chosen top-quality
products from Scott Drake.
Mustang Scott Drake Coil
These springs allow your Classic Mustang to take advantage of the
latest suspension technology and perform more like a modern sports car.
They provide a fairly stock smooth ride during normal driving, but as the
springs compress under load (primarily during braking and cornering) they
progressively become firmer to offer the handling characteristics similar
to our 600 pound performance springs.
Mustang Scott Drake Lower
Control Arm Assembly 1965-1966:
These lower control arms are the finest available and feature the original
riveted design for a more authentic look. They are painted black and
natural steel gray and come with a ball joint, grease seal, a washer and
nut and a cotter key.
Mustang Scott Drake Upper
Control Arm Assembly 1965-1966:
These upper control arms are the finest reproductions available and are not
rebuilt, but rather all new. They're painted black and natural steel gray,
come ready to install, and include the bushings, ball joint, but with
cotter key and washers with locking nuts.
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!
Mustang Rod & Custom Rack and Pinion/Disc Brake Conversion Kit Install 1965-1973
This Rod & Custom Motorsports Rack and Pinion/Disc Brake Conversion Kit
with a Coilover/Tubular A-Arm System is for all 1965-1973 V8 Mustangs with manual steering.
Rod & Custom Motorsports understands quality verses affordability. That's
why all of Rod & Custom's kits are designed with top grade steel, intense
quality control procedures and manufactured with the buyers needs in
This is Rod & Custom's most popular system, as it's a true coilover system
that allows ride height adjustability. While other kits adjust the height
by simply screwing the shocks up or down, Rod & Custom uses their "Unique
Slide" design that allows the kit to operate through the full range of
motion without loss of travel. By using one of these kits you will gain an
extra 7" of engine clearance on each side!
With all of this in mind, the CJ team decide to add this Cross Member to
our 50/30 Project Mustang.
Order one for your Mustang
and watch our install video to learn about how you can install it on your
1965-1973 Mustang yourself!
