Mustang IFS kits

There sure is a lot of manufactures today claiming that their IFS kits are better than the other ones. Also the prices of these kits are all over the place. My question is are the cheaper priced kits as good as the higher priced ones? Are the cheaper kits American made? Is the Chassis Engineering Bolt on kits the way to go and are they just as safe as the weld in kits? Would it be cheaper in the long run to buy a full roller completed chassis from one of the many suppliers. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

First I guess it all depends on what your planning to build weather you start with a full rolling chassis or update an old frame. I have a Fat Man Fabrications stage II Mustang II front end in my 57 Chevy pickup, it's been in for about 13 years and is still working good except the A arm bushings squeak. Fat Man uses a heavy wall square tube crossmember where others use a lighter wall crossmember.

Mustang IFS

Thanks Half Ton, I have a 37 Ford sedan that I plan on putting the front and on. The car is in really fine shape and everything is there, I just left the Chassis Engineering web site and did a small tally of all that I need if i go the bolt on way. Price wise If I choose the bolt on way i would be getting pretty close to a full roller. I want to do this car as economical as possible but still make safety the top priority. I want it to be a driver and not a trailer queen. With the price if gas going higher by the minute, I'm starting to think about a V6 instead of the Chevy V8 that I have. Just a thought.

If you do a search here and on www.streetrodding.com you will find threads about MII failures, some causing major accidents and injuries. Most of the causes were due to cheap thin gauge kits (hate to use that word) and/or bad installation procedure. So it's really a no brainer, by a well known manufacturer's heavy wall tig welded unit and have it installed by REAL pro.
