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. Most of the parts mentioned in this video can be found here: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/frsu.html Springs we used: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/c7zz-5310-p.html Rubber Insulators: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/c4dz-5415-a.html Rear seat divider panel (67-68 Cougar): http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/store/p/13463-Divider-Rear-Seat-to-Trunk -Coupe-METAL-New-1967-1968-Mercury-Cougar.html See also: 69-70 Cougar panel: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/store/p/13464-Divider-Rear-Seat-to-Trunk -Coupe-METAL-New-1969-1970-Mercury-Cougar.html If we forgot to list anything, you should be able to find it on our website!

Mustang Front Suspension Installation Forgotten Fastback 1965
http://www.cjponyparts.com/1964-1973-Mustang-suspension/c/10170000/ 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 Springs 1965-1966: http://www.cjponyparts.com/scott-drake-coil-spring-progressive-rate-pair-19 65-1966/p/CSPR1/ 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: http://www.cjponyparts.com/scott-drake-lower-control-arm-assembly-premium-b lack-gray-1965-1966/p/LCA71/ 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: http://www.cjponyparts.com/scott-drake-upper-control-arm-assembly-premium-b lack-gray-1965-1966/p/UCA3/ 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.





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. 15 min Video of the complete C10 front end being rebuilt here: http://youtu.be/t0BN1B0-mZs ========================================­= Follow me on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/AGearHead4Li... ========================================­= Check out my other videos like this on the link below: http://www.youtube.com/user/AGearHead4Life
