68 Mercury Cougar Shock Tower Brace Modification To Fit
10th part of the Mercury Cougar restoration. Here the finished suspension
is looked at and the after market shock tower brace is modified to fit the
car. The painted engine bay and installed engine can also be seen. As
always, thanks for watching and comments are welcome. There was some
feedback on this video about the shock towers sagging inwards on these
cars. The original braces fit ok and dropped into place. These are old
cars and anything can happen, but original fits are something to be
How To Control Arm Bushing Removal at Home (without a torch) 1984 Chevrolet Truck C10 DIY
This video is showing one way I remove the control arm bushings from a 1984
Chevrolet truck C10 if you don't have a torch and with basic tools that
most will have.
After stripping these arms down and buying the new bushings and ball
joints, I will recommend to anyone considering doing this - DONT. Just buy
the complete control arm with all already installed and painted. The $100
you save (for 4 arms) doing it yourself is not worth all of the labor
you'll put into it. Plus they probably still wont look as good.

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.

Wheel Lip Mouldings On A Budget - 1967-1968 Mercury Cougar
For Cougars, trim pieces can be very expensive. The wheel lip mouldings are
not reproduced for 67-68 Cougars, so your only options are to have your
originals restored, which is very costly (over $400 for a set of 4) or find
NOS trim, which is also very expensive and they are almost impossible to
The good news is, there is another option! We've found that the
reproduction 1971-73 Mustang wheel lip mouldings can be
easily modified to fit a 67-68 Cougar. While the fit isn't perfect and the
profile is a little different, these mouldings only cost about $120 for 4
and look great once installed. Or, if you send us your original core trim,
we'll give you these for free.
Using two right rears and two left rears, the only modifications you need
to do are 1) drill new holes in your wheel arch and 2) trim the rear
mouldings to fit. Watch the video and you'll see it's really quite easy,
and the result looks great considering the low cost.

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.

These lower control arms are the finest available and feature the original
riveted design for a more authentic look. They are painted black and

Mustang Scott Drake Upper
Control Arm Assembly 1965-1966:
These upper control arms are the finest reproductions available and are not

cotter key and washers with locking nuts.
