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.

The Story Of Cougar 1: The First Mercury Cougar
A while back, we sat down with Jim Pinkerton, the owner of the very first
production Mercury Cougar (1967 model year), a.k.a. Cougar 1. We hit the
"record" button on our cameras and he let loose with an epic tale of how
the car was first sold in Canada, its subsequent life there, and how it
eventually got into his hands - an intriguing story! He also goes over some
of the unique features of the car, and some of the restoration techniques
used. It's a truly beautiful factory show car with more attention to detail
than the 'average' Cougar.
Special thanks to Jim Pinkerton for his time, and for providing most of the
images you see in this video from his own collection of Cougar memorabilia.

1967 Ford Mustang Fastback
The Ford Mustang is an
automobile manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. It was initially based
on the second generation North American Ford Falcon, a compact car.
Introduced early on April 17, 1964, dubbed as a "1964½" model by Mustang fans, the 1965 Mustang was the automaker's most
successful launch since the Model A. The model is Ford's third oldest
nameplate in production and has undergone several transformations to its
current fifth generation.
The Mustang created the
"pony car" class of American automobiles—sports car-like coupes with long
hoods and short rear decks[—and gave rise to competitors such as GM's
Chevrolet Camaro, AMC's
Javelin, and Chrysler's revamped Plymouth Barracudas and Dodge Challengers.

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!
