1971-1973 Mustang Strut Suspension Kit

1971-73 Mustang Strut Suspension Kit: These very popular cars suffer from the malady common to most 60’s cars…poor geometry due to the minimal demands of the tires and traffic of their day. Today’s roads and superior tire traction require updates to make these cars work as well as they look. By installing a strut type suspension based on 94-04 Mustang parts, you’ll eliminate the factory bumpsteer while gaining an adjustable ride with either coilovers or Airride, along with 5 lug disc brakes (15” or larger wheels are required). The original column, or a tilt column and U-joint hook up can be used to complete the job. The rack and pinion and polished stainless steel lower control arms attach to a new crossmember plate which bolts in and reinforces the body, avoiding the problems associated with welding a MII crossmember into the weak stock sub rails. Since the McPherson Strut Suspension eliminates the upper control arms, you can choose to trim the fender wells for header clearance, or leave them stock.  This bolt in swap will let your Mustang run in the fast lane! Call or write Fatman’s at (704) 545-0369, 8621-C Fairview Rd, Hwy 218, Charlotte, NC 28227-7619
