The main thing, you'll have to move your shock mount to the outside of your a-arms. Unless you are going with the Shockwaves setup.

I saw a kit that a chassis manufacturer was making to convert M-II to airride that had new lower A-arms with a plate for the bag, and a mount for the shock on the outside of the arms, a plate that bolts in where the coil over goes through the upper A-arms to support the top of the air bladders, bump-stops built in and air bladders for like $460 (?).

Other than that...find out what the total stroke of the airbag is going to be (minimum height of the bag and maximum inflated height of the bag), then make sure that your crossmember, transmission, fenders and grill wont grind when you are lowered all the way..and that your tires dont rub your fenderwells when you are all the way down and turning. If your bag drop isn't enough, you will have to use 2" drop spindles. If anything drags, you will have to build up your bumpstops to make sure that your bags can only drop the front end to whereever everything drags minus 1".

DZ........ You mentioned that you had an OEM mustang II with tubulars........... let me get this straight first because there can be some pretty big differences in what you need to do...... Is this an OEM crossmember pulled form an original mustang or is it an aftermarket front end ( ie, heidts, Scotts, ect. ) ? Do you already have tubular arms on the crossmember ? if so....... what type of tubulars are they ( ie, Heidts econo strut rod eliminators )?

Tony....
