Do Narrow A Arms work?

Hey guys:
I have heard that using narrower A arms on 35-40 Fords give you more clearance and bring the tires in to keep from rubbing the fenders. Has anybody used the narrower arms for this reason? Has anybody used any specific name brands that have worked well with a mustang II set up? I want to make sure the narrower A arms clear the shock towers. My front end is a 15 year old Heidts product.

George

What you need to be concerned with is the suspension geometry. Bolting in different arms will change a lot of things if the design hasn't been optimized for your geometry points. Roll Center Height, Roll Center Migration, Ackerman, Bump Steer, Camber Gain, etc., etc. will all be hit hard and if the hit is bad enough your car will not be fun to drive... Make sure what you are buying will work with your set-up...
