This is what your Falcon/Mustang suspension looks like.

This is a Mustang II set up on a AD Chevy pickup (1947-first series 55) frame. I couldn't find a single good photo of a stock Mustang II set up on a Mustang II!

Sort of a "stock Mustang II" that is, because the original Mustang II had a strut rod going from the lower control arm to the front crossmember which the Chevy pickup doesn't have so you can't run the stock strut rods out there and it would be as ugly as sin if you did so they were long done away with in the street rod world by using a normal triangle shaped lower control arm like the uppers so there is no need for the strut rod.
