Mustang 11 modification?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am currently installing a TCI Mustang 11 cross member with stock control arms in my 1948 Chevy 1/2 ton pickup. I remember some where there was a modificitation on the top hat where a 1 inch by 3/8 thick bar was layed on edge and welded on the top so the upper control arm shaft was rotated 90 dergrees and bolted to the bar. Shims were used for front end alignment, rather than having the bolts sliding in the slots cut in the top hat.

Has any one made this modification or remember where the modification was posted?

Seems like a lot of extra work for no gain if you ask me.

Unless you have all the gear to do your own front end alignment at home you'll never see the benefits (if there are any) from this mod. I've built two different vehicles with Mustang II IFS systems and once the front end was aligned it stayed that way and so far I've never had to have them realigned. That's why I question the need for the mod you describe.
