Max load capacity on a M II IFS?

To allow my hot rod for public road use, the Norwegian autorities want some kind of documentation on how much load the M II IFS is made to handle.
Total car weight isn't god enough. I need the maximum load capacity for the front suspension exclusively.

Anyone here that have a Chilton or Haynes Repair manual for Mustang II?
Those numbers are normally listed in these manuals.

Or maybe there are other places I can find them?

Very grateful for quick answers, as this is probalby the last small details left before I got my plates!

Got a quick answer from the manufacturer, Fat Man Fabrication.
They claim to have used their MII, stage 3 kit on cars with 2600lbs front end load without any issues.

That's good enough for me. My car's front axle weight is 1452lbs, so I'm perfectly comfortable with using 2600lbs as a maximum allowed.

What I meant by using the original MII numbers, is that they would have been useful as a hint in my communication with the autorities.

Chances are big that the after market MII suspensions aren't much weaker than the original one.
At least not the well proven ones from known manufacturers.

But as I said: Problem is solved!

Mustang IFS

The original mustang IFS,is NOT nearly as strong as the Fatmans IFS,(I have one on my 48 Ford coupe)...Of course,the mustang 2,was not very heavy either,,,
