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.

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.

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.

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.
