I would like the front wheels to be tucked in as tightly as possible..
currently I have all the stock mustang II parts necessary to do the job, (except for the cross member itself) and I believe I even have a set of airbags to fit in place of the springs... :-)
sadly I dont have a stock 41 front axle.. (or any stock style front end parts for that matter)
I like the chassis engineering front cross member (the bolt in feature would make it go together quickly) however I am wondering if I might be better served with a slightly narrower cross member mady by someone else..
search turned up lots of thougths.. just need some real world experience..
Which frame are you using? The 41, or the 42/48 frame. the sheet metal from the 41 might not fit on the 42/48 frame, as the frame might be wider and the front won't match the cowl, or the grille area of the 41 is not wide enough.
