For a 67 Vert with 302, 4speed, 8” 3.80 rear gears.
Already committed to stock rear suspension with factory GT 114# leafs and KYB shocks.
I am soon installing 13” cobra disks in front using Steve’s brackets and 01 Bullitt 17x8 wheels.
I might eventually add EPS power steering, but for now the manual steering is probably staying as is.
My current front springs are way off and ride really high. I need to either cut or replace them. And do the 1”drop
If I wanted to throw caution to the wind, and order up a full front suspension package,, What are the pro vs con.
Street or track looks real nice. Very similar to Global West. TCP? Any others worth looking at?
Maybe even one tracker, but really like the idea of going struts mounted to LCA.
Consider $3k the max budget for just the suspension.
Which would you buy, and why?
SoT, Global West, TCP, Maier Racing are all very fine companies producing quality products. Tubular upper and lower control arms, roller bearing everything... all great stuff. I don’t think opentracker offers tubular components, but IIRC offers components that are reinforced and rollerized. Again, all great.
So, pros and cons are related to what you plan on doing with the car. Road course racing? AutoX? Drag racing? Lumbering along to get ice cream in the weekend?
ASSUMING you are looking at great handling being the primary goal (as in capable of some racing, or really aggressive canyon carving), then my money would go towards companies who actively race. Lots of folks stand by SoT and Opentracker. Both are solid choices. Maier has great prodcts, but outside of your stated budget.
You really cant go wrong buying from a company that specialises in early mustangs. Differences between any of the above is splitting hairs.
Whatever you go with, and still under the same assumption above, I would at least change the rear shocks to compliment the front suspension shocks.
347ci that has a lot of neat stuff in it
T5 manual trans, alum driveshaft, 9" w/3.70 gears
Suspension parts from SoT, Global West, Maier Racing, and a few others. Works for me!
TCP manual rack (love it)
(Love this the most)
VWW V45 wheels (like these too)
SoT 13" brakes (stopping is good)
And I finally got a paint job!
